Former HUSS student Emil Neszmélyi plans to conquer Southern Pole

Emil Neszmélyi, a former student of the university, is preparing to reach the South Pole on skis and sledge.

Dr Emil Neszmélyi, former student of the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS), the only Hungarian mountaineer who has twice conquered the 8848-meter-high Mount Everest, is preparing for another unusual "trip".

Now he wants to reach the southernmost point of the Earth, the South Pole in two months. He is going on skis while pulling a sledge in temperatures expected to be minus 40-50 degrees Celsius. The lawyer has already conquered the highest peaks on all seven continents, but this time he's not flirting with altitude, but with distance: more than 1,000 kilometres await him. 

As known, Emil Neszmélyi reached the summit of Mount Everest in 2016 with the university’s flag in his hand. His mental preparation was assisted by Dr habil Ágota Lénárt, former head of the Department of Psychology and Sport Psychology.
