The 18th Harbin International Winter Swimming Invitational Tournament was held on Friday in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang province.

As an important part of the city’s International Ice and Snow Festival, winter swimming has become famous both at home and abroad.

Even when the temperature dropped to as low as -20 C, the extreme cold and strong wind on the frozen Songhua River couldn't stop the enthusiasm of the winter swimming enthusiasts.

The two-day tournament attracted nearly 600 contestants from China, Russia and the US.
