Icelanders swimming in the cold North Atlantic Ocean video and photos
Today many people took part in swimming in the ocean in Reykjavik.
It is to celebrate the art of swimming , and for people to swim more. Icelandic Coast Guard had two of its boats there to take part in the celebration. They even had a swimming race , from the Coast Guard boat , to land . But they also just enjoyed swimming , and sang along as the swam in the cold sea. The outside temperature was at 6 on the celcius and the sea water temp, was 7 degrees on the celcius. After the swimming , the swimmers went to the hot water pool nearby ,to get some heat into their bodies, and to accept some medals for their part in this today .
