Ice, ice, baby: Beijing's winter swimmers shrug off record lows

 

Temperatures in Beijing were set to plummet to a three-decade low overnight on Wednesday, but that didn’t stop a hardy group of retirees plunging into icy waters to indulge in their bracing hobby of outdoor swimming.

As the mercury fell to minus eleven Celsius (-12 Fahrenheit) in China’s capital by the afternoon — and was forecast to dip as low as minus 18 overnight — around 15 swimmers jumped into icy outdoor waters at a central city park.

“It’s cold in the water, but you will feel good when you come out,” promises 60-year-old Nie Bing, emerging from the cold waves in a pair of trunks.
