Kannapolis Nutrition Center Plays Critical Role in Antarctica Expedition
Colin O’Brady did the “impossible” when he became the first person to cross Antarctica alone, unaided and unsupported late last year. The 33-year-old Oregon native began a 932-mile trek across the frozen continent, pulling a sled full of supplies that weighed 400 pounds at the start of the journey. During the 54-day expedition , which spanned from early November to late December 2018, O’Brady endured an average temperature of -22 degrees Fahrenheit, a windchill of -80 degrees Fahrenheit on windy days, and a 10,000-foot climb.

The world record that O’Brady set out to beat had nothing to do with speed and everything to do with endurance. Nutrition was the key to his success. That’s why he reached out to Standard Process and their Nutrition Innovation Center located in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
