In the morning of January 10, 2010,many swimming lovers from Nanning, Baise, Wuzhou and other places of Guangxi come to Nanning Yong River Bridge to participate the annually Winter Swimming activity.image

Though they say it is one way to commemorate that Chairman Mao swan Yong River in 1958, I think it is a good chance of practice and it is a good way to welcome the new year. Weather forecast says that the temperature is 12鈩儈15鈩, prety warm for winter, but a light rain begin to fall at about 8:00. Yeah, the weather is not that good for swim, but those more than 2000 swimmers still will jump into the water.

The swimmers come from different companies, public institutions, govenment departments, schools, and citizens who love swimming. They are showing their team signboards happily before they jump into the river, and they lift their team logos when they are swimming across the river. I find many of their team signboards are unique and funny.
