A 16-year-old boy from the UK has become the youngest person to trek to the South Pole.
Lewis Clarke had to deal with temperatures as low as -50 Celsius and winds of up to 193km per hour.
His 1100km from the coast to the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station took 48 days.
He will now be submitting evidence to Guinness World Records so his claim can be officially verified.
The previous record was by Sarah McNair Landry from Canada in 2005, when she was aged 18.
