Moscow Winter-swimmers Open Winter Swimming Season

On Sunday a traditional all-city holiday opening a new winter swimming season took place in Moscow. Winter-swimmers from all Moscow gathered at the Bezdonnoye lake in Serebryany Bor to celebrate this holiday by swimming in an ice-hole. About 100 lovers of this sport dived into the frosty water and organized various competitions before the public. Women did not fail to keep up with men: they enjoyed swimming in the bracing cold water. According to popular wisdom, the secret of permanent youth lies in the cold water. Even children swam in the ice-hole. Their parents were confident that children's swimming in the ice-hole was "driving off all illnesses".

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
