“I was afraid of the wind, but… I thought I would regret it if I didn’t go alone.”
Captain Kim Young-mi (43, The North Face Athlete Team, photo) met with reporters at the Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul on the 14th and explained why she left alone for the South Pole.
“At first, she didn’t think of going alone,” said Kim. I promised to go with her friend,” he said. “But because of her friend’s marriage and pregnancy, I couldn’t go. She thought it was difficult on her own,” she explained. However, she did not break Captain Kim’s will to challenge. Captain Kim said, “I looked up foreign data on her, and she said that there were about four women at the time who had succeeded in the solo expedition to the South Pole by Mu Ji-won,” and she said, “I thought I could do it too.”
On the 16th of last month, after a long preparation, Captain Kim became the first Asian woman, the 12th woman in the world, and the first Korean to step on the South Pole alone in Mujiwon. Unsupported means not receiving power or material support. 온라인카지노
Captain Kim departed at 9:20 am local time on November 27 last year, pulling a sled weighing more than 110 kg, and she reached 90 degrees south latitude at 8:57 pm on the 16th of last month. Captain Kim walked 1186.5 km in 50 days, 11 hours and 37 minutes.
Captain Kim suffered from the threat of the wind throughout the long march. He said, “The wind was the most scary. Even in the journal of the expedition I left behind, there is only a story about the weather,” he said. Also, “The Antarctic temperature is about -20 degrees Celsius, similar to a freezer, but even if the wind blows only 3m per second, the perceived temperature drops below -25 degrees Celsius.” The basic energy for energy has also increased.”
Despite many difficulties, Captain Kim never thought of giving up. He emphasized, “I thought that I might not be able to go to the South Pole (due to running out of supplies), but I did not have the thought of giving up even though I had enough food and energy.”
