In Głogów, Poland at the International Ice Swimming Association 4th World Championship, many of the world’s best and most hardened ice swimmers are swimming well.

In the women’s Ice Kilometer, defending champion and Queen of the Ice Alisa Fatum of Germany won comfortably in 13:06:18, well off her world record of 12:48:70 set in 2019 and a bit off her championship record of 13:02:39, also set in 2019 in Murmansk.
