BUENOS AIRES—

British adventurer Felicity Aston completed her crossing of Antarctica on Monday, becoming the first woman to ski across the icy continent alone.

Aston also set another record: the first human to ski solo across Antarctica using only her own muscle power.

She did it in 59 days, pulling two sledges for 1,084 miles from her starting point on the Leverett Glacier back in November.
