Paralysed man reaches South Pole
Reno - A US man paralysed in a 2010 accident has reached the South Pole.
Thirty-three-year-old Grant Korgan is using a device called a Sitski to reach the pole on the 100-year anniversary of the Terra Nova Expedition that arrived there January 17 1912.
Korgan travelled about 120km in sub-zero temperatures during the two-week expedition. His crew says he's the first adaptive athlete to accomplish the feat.
Korgan's expedition party included paralympian John Davis, two guides and cinematographers who are shooting for a documentary.
