Finland hosts annual ice swimming championships

Competitors braved bone-chilling temperatures at Finland's annual ice swimming championships.

Toddlers and pensioners were among those involved at the event on a frozen lake in Ahtari where hundreds of people gathered to watch.

Temperatures are not set to reach above freezing this week in the region, but fortunately a number of hot tubs were on hand to warm swimmers up.
