Record-breaking trek to the South Pole

Today argonauts (adventurers) Ray Zahab, Richard Weber, and Kevin Vallely broke the record for the quickest unsupported, unassisted expedition to the South Pole — in other words, these guys just walked to the South Pole in 33 days, 23 hours, and 30 minutes, beating the old record by almost 6 days.

My friend Alastair Humphreys will also be attempting the first unsupported return journey to the South Pole. I guess the keyword there is “return”.
