Jenny Davis sets off for the South Pole

The London lawyer turned ultra-endurance athlete Jenny Davis will have begun a mission to break the record for the fastest solo expedition by a woman to the South Pole.

Alone on the ice, Jenny will attempt to ski 715 miles. 

The attempt will be solo, unsupported and unassisted, meaning Jenny will receive no outside assistance during the attempt and will be hauling a 80kg sled carrying her tent, food and equipment.

We've been to meet her before she leaves for the Antarctic.
