Freeze Frame


A group of dare-devil boys race across the frozen lake below the Olympic Swimming pool – in nothing but their swimming gear.  I wouldn’t have noticed them if it wasn’t for the high pitched screams rolling across the field once their bare feet hit the snow.  I think it’s at this point I’m supposed to tell you that no actual children were injured during the course of this stunt, as all of them were back in the pool in 10 seconds flat.  Although this was certainly an exception, Munich has done an amazing job of integrating most of their pools with the outdoors.  Many of the pools – the Westbad, Nordbad, etc – all have one of their pools outside and open in any kind of weather.
