  The schoolboy,who was raising money for a youth charity,began his epic journey in December last year.He had been planning the expedition for three years and began a tough training program in2012,starting with a two-week polar training course in Norway.After being fully prepared,the teenage boy started his journey to the South Pole.
  During the journey,Lewis encountered a range of problems,including blisters,a broken ski and a bad cough caused by the high altitudes.
  “I used to love snow,hate hot places and hot weather,and wear shorts in the winter.Now I’m not too sure,”Lewis said.“I’ve been through the entire list of polar problems.I knew it would be hard,but it’s harder than I ever thought it would be.But I conquered these challenges and completed my mission!”By reaching the South Pole,Lewis has become the youngest person to ski the full700miles from the Antarctic coast(南极海岸)to the Pole.
  On his arrival,Lewis said,“I’m really happy but mostly relieved that for the first time in48days, I don’t have to get up tomorrow and drag my sled for nine hours in the snow and icy wind.”
