The air temperature was -5°C and the water temperature: 0°C.The swimmers are aged 40 to 80.

“I feel good. My body doesn’t feel too cold,” said Mr. Wang, who has been swimming here in winter for over 20 years. “This way, I can exercise my body and keep healthy. More importantly, I can build my perseverance.”
They clearly had tons of fun as another winter swimmer started singing right after he got out of water. The crowd laughed and applauded.
