Winter swimming in Siberia
Liza Broverman, 6, and her sister Yulia Klimenkova, 16, members of the Cryophile winter swimmers club, bathe in the icy water of the Yenisei River in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, Nov 15, 2015. The air temperature was around minus 16 degrees Celsius. Yulia, who has been swimming with the club since she was four, says her friends praise her bravery but balk at taking the plunge themselves. Yulia, whose whole family are also members, says swimming in cold water boosts her health and recently helped her get over a respiratory virus. [Photo/Agencies]
