Walesonline reports the first pictures of former soldier's attempt to become first amputee to cross the Greenland Ice Cap - one of the world' most treacherous terrains.
Pete Bowker is currently attempting the first ever unsupported crossing by an amputee alongside a team of five others. Professor Liam Kilduff, a senior lecturer in applied sports technology at Swansea University, has worked hard to prepare the team, while Professor Rory Wilson, Department of Biosciences, is tracking their progress.
A former lance corporal in the Dragoon Guard, Pete had part of his leg amputated after being blown up by a roadside bomb while serving in Afghanistan three years ago.
