When online trolls told Australian teen Jade Hameister to ‘make a sandwich,’ she did and invited them to come get it – at the South Pole

Isabella Gomez and David Williams, writing for CNN:

So when she skied to the South Pole earlier this month and became the youngest person to ever pull off the Polar Hat Trick, she delivered a delightfully snarky message to those internet haters:

She posted a photo of her holding a plate with a ham and cheese sandwich.

“I made you a sandwich (ham & cheese),” she wrote. “Now ski 37 days and 600km to the South Pole and you can eat it.”

16 year old Jade Hameister is breaking records in Antarctica

Jade Hameister, a 16 year old student from Melbourne, Australia, is breaking records in Antarctica. She just become the the youngest person to ski to the North Pole, Greenland Ice Shelf, and now The South Pole.

Nicole Precel, writing in The Age:

The teen arrived at the South Pole after a gruelling 37-day journey and is the youngest to complete the polar hat-trick but is also the first woman to set a new route through Kansas Glacier from the Amundsen Coast of Antarctica.

“The one (record) I think is really special is the first woman to set a new route to the South Pole, and that’s kind of the one that I keep bringing up, the rest of them I’m not really fussed,” she said.

The ‘rest of them’ includes, at age 14, becoming the youngest to ski to the North Pole from anywhere outside the last degree of latitude, resulting in her being awarded Australian Geographic Society’s Young Adventurer of the Year.
