New Bri­tish record

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

A FOR­MER Welsh in­ter­na­tional rugby play­er­turned-ad­ven­turer has beaten his own Bri­tish record af­ter ski­ing to the South Pole.

Richard Parks, 42, trav­elled solo from the Antarc­tic coast’s Her­cules In­let to the South Pole in 28 days af­ter bat­tling hunger, fierce snow bliz­zards and freez­ing tem­per­a­tures.

He broke his pre­vi­ous record of 29 days, 19 hours and 24 min­utes, which he set in 2014.
