Should Ice Swimming Be In The Olympics?


A good question here on Open Water Swimming

One of the most fascinating topics at the 2012 Global Open Water Swimming Conference in Long Beach, California was the discussion on how to get ice swimming into the Winter Olympics.

Those discussions will undoubtedly continue at the 2013 Global Open Water Swimming Conference in Cork, Ireland. In addition to the Summer Olympics goal of athletes to go higher, faster, stronger, many events of the Winter Olympics have a high element of daredevil feats and inherent risk.
