Our best guide Victor Bobok and his group has reached the North Pole. Despite the heavier than usual weather, bitter cold and wind, our skiers have made "last degree" programme, i.e., the last 111 km, in perfect tempo. In reality, they were about 12-15 km more, because every day the ice drift carried them in the opposite direction.

Our congratulations to Victor, who made the Grand Slam - a collection of 7 summits and two poles. Before him, in Russia only Fedor Konyukhov did it.
