Winter Swimming

Malakhova,Winter SwimmingToday, 01/20/2012 Winter Swimming World Championship OPEN 2012 is taking place in Jurmala, Latvia. 1128 participants from 27 countries have signed up to this completion. They will fight for the world champion title in this sport. The championship is taking place on the Lielupe river, water temperature is +0.5 C° . Swimming in the cold water is quite “young” sport. At first it became very popular in Finland and now it is popular worldwide.
Wishing to all participants an interesting sport fight and worthy victory!

P.S. It is awesome to swim in the icy water! I tried it two times in my life. The first time I swam in a spring (water welling up from the earth) in September, and the second time - I swam in the river in November, “cool” !!!
