Roald Amundsen

Roald Amundsen by Peter Lin

The important thing about Roald Amundsen is that he was the first one to reach the South Pole. Yes, he wanted to be the one to reach the North Pole first but Robert Edwin Peary beat him. He was born in 1872, July 16 in Borge, Norway. Yes, Robert F. Scott came five weeks after Amundsen and his Norwegian team reached the South Pole. Roald left on a ship called Fram but the important thing about Roald Amundsen is that he was the first one to reach the South Pole.

    WOW! Was he really the first one to go to the South Pole? I find that very interesting that he was the first. Being the first at anything is cool. I wonder how Roald ended up there. I loved the way you organized the passage!
