Prince Harry's expedition to the South Pole suspended after organiser decides teams are being pushed 'a little too hard' | Mail Online

Quote:
Prince Harry's race to the South Pole with his fellow Walking With The Wounded expedition competitors has been suspended for safety reasons.

Harry set off on the gruelling charity trek on Sunday with a team of injured British servicemen and women against groups from the U.S. and the Commonwealth.

But the expedition director Ed Parker has taken the decision to suspend the race aspect of the challenge, but he is determined that all the members will make it to the South Pole as one group

the media headlines on this have been so misleading. If that is all anyone read (and there's a lot that do) you'd think the whole thing was all over.

Its the "race" that has stopped, not the walk. Why can't headline writers read the piece before writing the headlines (or tweets)?

Yes I agree. Here is another example of a misleading headline.
BBC News
Actually, this seems a very sensible precaution to take and should not detract from the enormity of the challenge they are all undertaking.

Although this was a race, I always thought how cool it would be if all the teams walked together to the actual South Pole. Suspending the race aspect I think is a good idea.

I'd like to see a picture off all of the teams forming a circle around the South Pole in celebration.

Prince Harry’s Antarctic trek team mates have paid tribute to the Royal, describing his “crucial” role in their successful expedition to the South Pole.
Members of the Prince’s Walking With the Wounded team suffered frost bite while others struggled with the effects of altitude and exhaustion. The 200-mile trek was also hit by severe weather, and the race element was called off half way through over safety fears.
But Captain Guy Disney, 31, one of Prince Harry’s team mates, said he coped “easily” with the -49F (-45C) temperatures.

Oh yah.. he's definitely oozing the alpha male vibes. I'd like to see him keep that beard for a while. There's just something about a man with a beard that gets my attention.

He can't keep the beard once he goes back to work- only the Royal Navy allow beards.

Drats! I forgot about that. Ah well... at least we did get a good glimpse of him in a full beard.

Prince Harry is determined to highlight the bravery of the injured servicemen whom he joined on their expedition to the South Pole, even though the competitive element had to be suspended because of “difficult terrain”.
Mandrake hears that the Prince has agreed to appear in a television documentary, provisionally called Harry’s Heroes, which will show how the adventurers, including 12 servicemen and women from Britain and other nations who have suffered terrible injuries, including the loss of limbs, pulled sledges for more than 200 miles across the frozen wastes of Antarctica.
The programme will be broadcast by ITV in March. “It will include some quite emotive stuff from Harry,” I am told.

The Wire star Dominic West must have wished he’d taken an extra-thick pair of earmuffs when he joined Prince Harry’s South Pole trek – just so that he could avoid the Royal’s taste in music. ‘Harry has a terrible selection on his iPod.
It is the sort of thing soldiers listen to – hardcore thrash metal,’ he says.
But at least Dominic, above, was far more complimentary about the Prince’s skills with a shovel during their Walking With The Wounded expedition shortly before Christmas.
