FINA delegate Colin Hill not only finished second overall in the men’s 500m freestyle at the International Ice Swimming Association 3rd World Championship and Ice Swimming Arctic Cup [see video below], but he also promoted and videotaped all kinds of scenes and swimmers in Murmansk, Russia last week.

I’ve mixed a few races together to make up this video as I wanted to show a race from start to finish to try and capture the excitement and experience,” Hill explained from the 2019 International Ice Swimming Association championships.
