Winter swimming in Siberia
Mikhail Sashko, chairman and one of the founders of the Cryophile winter swimmers club, bathes in cold water during a flash mob, part of a celebration of Polar Bear Day at the Royev Ruchey Zoo in a suburb of the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, Nov 29, 2015. "The moment of immersion is a sensation of delight. Afterwards there's a rush of energy and my entire body feels relaxed," says Sashko, a director in the construction industry. "My wife says I am crazy." The air temperature was about minus 5 degrees Celsius. [Photo/Agencies]
