Although cold and remote, Antarctica sure seems to be a popular continent these days among endurance athletes.

After finishing the Last Desert, Dean Karnazes was declared the overall winner of the 4Deserts series. He also became the first athlete to complete all four events in a calendar year.

A violent storm hit them yesterday, causing the cancellation of Stage 5 of the race. Nine to fourteen meter waves hit their ship, sending stuff flying all over. Sounds like a fun race to do some day!
