Armed with a crampon, two ice axes and a 7 millimeters thick neoprene suit, the Colombian diver ventures through the cold places of Antarctica. It all started on January 5th 2018, that day Duque left his home in Cali, Colombia, to undertake one of the most dangerous and difficult adventures in his more than 25 years of sports career: jumping from a giant ice floe in Antarctica and show the world how humans exterminate this continent that is essential for the conservation of life on earth.
