The current prolonged pandemic has been rather unpleasant. It continues to cage us and test our mettle.
Many have lost family and friends and for those we take a quiet moment of silence remembering how lucky we are to be around safe and raring to get back into the frozen icy waters.
Some countries has limited or no access to any form of swimming. I hope you are well, safe and keeping fit.
There is no doubt in my mind that we will get back to swimming all around the world and I only hope it will be sooner than later.
In the meantime, some lucky ones around the world who manage to train and find a nearby place to swim in the ice - we are extremely jealous and we want to welcome you to our family of mad frozen ice swimmers.
I included Dec 2020 as the ice season started around the world.
Dec 2020 was dominated by American and Canadian Ice swimmers. January was grabbed by the ICE HORNS by the Irish Ice swimmers from Limerick.
We also saw swimmers from Poland, Ukraine, Morocco, Switzerland, and Germany.
Few mentions in general (however, you are all Frozen Champions)
Welcome and well done to our 2021 Ice Swimmers.
Keep swimming, if you can, when you can. Keep it safe and think about those who cant swim while you are breaking the ICE.
and See you in the ICE - SOON!
