Breaking ICE – in Russia
Welcome to the First woman Ice Swimmer from Russia
Elena swam in Russia, Ulianovsk, Sviyaga river and completed a 1 mile swim in 4.33C according to IISA Rules.
It was a tough swim and its took 47 min, however, Elena dug deeper and deeper and completed her challenge.
Olga Sokolova swam with her but came out after 1.2km. Great effort and experience. When the ICE says you done! you get out!
Elena is the 3rd Russian Ice Swimmer after two legend Ice Swimmers Brylin and Andre.
Well done Elena and welcome to our mad frozen club!
