School director Margret Benedikz interviews David Izosimov, a student on the IB Dip programme, who recently walked to the South Pole on his Christmas break.

David trained for over a year before going on the trip and was regularly spotted with a spare tyre in tow on campus, getting in tip top condition.

David tells Margret about the inspiration behind the trip, all the training involved, the gear needed and just how he came to be the youngest Swede who has walked to the South Pole.
