“Mao Zedong used to enjoy a winter swim in the Yongjiang river,” informs Li Zhixin, drying his not inconsiderable frame with a small hand towel. “But that is in the south of China, and the water temperature is about 14 degrees.” He puffs out his chest, and gestures to a large hole cut into the frozen lake, where a silver-haired man is leisurely performing the backstroke. “That is only 3.”

Mr. Li, a garrulous 60-something, is the Chairman of the Beijing Winter Swimming Club, which, incredibly, boasts some 2000 members. They are all enthusiastic advocates of a peculiar extreme sport which is part test of character, part physical regime, and even part philosophy. “Beijing winters are very cold,” explains Li, “and people like to hide indoors. This is the natural reaction to anything difficult – to keep away. But we believe it is much better in life to face things, to strengthen our resistance.”

He glances over his shoulder as a middle-aged man in stripy red underpants lets out an exaggerated roar of self-encouragement, and plunges himself into the icy waters below. “Not too bad today,” the man splutters to Mr. Li “I’d say maybe a 4!”

A revolving cast of about 20 swim club members appear every day on the banks of the capital’s Houhai Lake to perform this ritual. Most are recently retired, and emphasize the activity’s health-boosting capabilities. “Exposure to cold water strengthens our immune system,” insists Mr. Ma, who used to be a factory worker, and has been swimming for more than a decade now. “We get fewer colds in winter, though we still get some.”

A spirited French man named Olivier ambles over and chats to the men, eager to try himself. He strips, grinning and pretending to shiver with each layer shed, and makes his way to the water’s edge. After a few perfunctory stretches he hovers. An anxious pause. More stretching. More hovering. His cheery bravado is gradually replaced by a slightly bewildered expression, as if he thought he’d volunteered for something else. Then suddenly he is in, thrashing and cursing loudly. He completes a face-saving lap, and that is enough. The regulars laugh and cheer. They have recruited their first foreigner into the club.

“It’s not actually that bad,” Olivier later insists, as the memory subsides. “Just the initial impact…you come up for air feeling like you are suffocating, but after a few seconds it gets better.” He says he’d try it again, but is not convinced it can be good for health. “Ask me in the morning.”

Mr. Li, the Secretary, who has been watching with a paternalistic frown, offers a kindly reprimand. “It is unwise to just try this one time,” he says. “We swim here all year round so our bodies adjust to the water as it grows colder each season. Otherwise it may be unhealthy. Humans are not built for extremes.”

Li admits to being uninformed about the science behind the physical benefits, or indeed possible dangers, of winter swimming. In actual fact, such science is more or less nonexistent. Researchers agree that sudden, unexpected entry into near-freezing water, such as accidentally falling through ice, is extremely hazardous to health, and potentially fatal. But there has been no definitive judgement concerning voluntary entry. Some believe it is possible it helps toughen the body against disease, but there is very little supporting evidence.

Li is more of an empiricist. “All I know is that our oldest member is 93,” he grins, then offers a loose analogy: “If you want a piece of beef to last longer, you put it in a freezer… well, the lake is just our freezer. We take precautions, and allow our bodies to grow steadily used to it. That way there is little risk.”

Not sure he has fully convinced, he fetches a swimming club newsletter from a satchel and points to a line written in heavy print, underlined twice for certainty. “Safety is heavier than Mount Tai,” it reads.

Half a kilometer south of Houhai is a smaller lake named Qianhai, where 69 year old Wang Yansheng is standing on a tall pillar in a pair of blue speedos, serenading a swelling crowd of passersby with a song of friendship. Below him is an icy pool. Jutting rocks are visible barely 2 meters below the surface.

“If you are sad, please come see me,” Wang’s shaky, earnest baritone implores. “If you are happy, please forget me.” After a brisk salute, he counts to three, then launches himself into the air, arms spread like a showman. A lady gasps, a little girl shrieks. Wang crashes into the pool with an uncultured ‘wump.’ The crowd roar their approval.

Mr. Wang doesn't belong to the Beijing Winter Swimming Club, and it’s fair to say he gives thoughts of safety fairly short shrift. He comes to entertain.

Wang is from a renowned sporting family – his daughter is a former Asian Games 800m champion, his son is a national weightlifting finalist – and used to perform this stunt on a daily basis. But after recently becoming a grandfather, he has been forced to scale back performances to once

The -20 (chest freezer) in 430 has this lovely chart to help you determine when your frozen large game and such have gone bad/inedible. Of course, the freezer is actually full of enzymes and antibodies, but nobody makes charts for that.

For some reason, I always think of Susan when I see this chart. For the life of me, I have no idea why.
