Grant Korgan South PoleGrant Korgan South Pole, A Nevada man paralyzed in a 2010 snowmobiling accident has reached the South Pole. Thirty-three-year-old Grant Korgan, of Incline Village, is using a device called a Sitski to reach the pole on the 100-year anniversary of the Terra Nova Expedition that arrived there Jan. 17, 1912.

Korgan traveled about 75 miles 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 called “The Push: A South Pole Adventure.” The film is expected to be released later this year.

The challenge supports California-based nonprofit High Fives Foundation, which helps injured winter athletes recover and get back to their sport.
