The temperature dropped as low as -20 C recently in Harbin, capital of Northeast China's Heilongjiang province. However, the extreme cold and strong wind on the frozen Songhua River couldn't stop the enthusiasm of a group of winter swimming enthusiasts.

In Jinhewan Wetland Park, a certain swimming area attracts many winter swimming enthusiasts.

One by one they jumped into the Songhua River from a 4-meter-high diving platform, drawing a rousing ovation from the crowd.
