Amelia Hempleman Adams, the youngest person to ski in the AntarcticThe 16-year-old daughter of explorer David Adams is to join her father on an expedition to ski to the South Pole. If successful, Amelia will become the youngest person to ski in the Antarctic. They plan to ski the last 97 miles to the South Pole over two weeks.
It would not be the first time one of Mr. Adams's daughters has joined him on a polar mission. In 2005, Amelia's sister Alicia, then aged 15, became the youngest person to trek to the North Pole.
The latest challenge will begin 97 miles from the South Pole, at the spot where Sir Ernest Shackleton had to abandon his expedition in 1907. Mr. Adams said: "I am apprehensive about taking a teenager to such a harsh environment. It will be minus 30 on a daily basis, dropping as low as minus 60 when the wind is cold. But Shackleton has always been a hero of mine and it will be wonderful to walk in his footsteps. It will be very special to share this experience with my youngest daughter."
Amelia will have to consume 8,000 calories a day to deal with the harsh conditions because the Antarctic is one of the coldest, driest and most windswept places on earth. "I am frightened about the harsh conditions as I don't know what to expect, the cold, the wind, etc. However, eating a lot of chocolate won't be hard for me," she said. "I am not sure if I'll be able to sleep, though, since it is 24-hour daylight at the South Pole and dad snores very loudly when he is asleep."
