Holiday on Ice
Winter swimming is very popular in Kharkov. The public association “Saltovsky Walruses” is one of the leading in this sport. A significant number of Maccabi Kharkov members, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, are included in the community of fans of extreme sports.
Winter swimming competition was held with great success by the initiative of Maccabi Kharkov and the association “Saltovsky Walruses”. The competition took place on the last day of winter, on the eve of Purim, in one of the reservoirs in Kharkov. Competitions were held with 60 participants in three age groups at distances of 25 and 50 meters. Great work was carried out by the organizers of the event, preparing the venue and taking care of the safety of participants and spectators. The organizers were well prepared and in addition to the sport competition conducted a diverse cultural and entertainment festive program.
All participants and winners of contests and competitions were awarded with Maccabi diplomas, medals, cups and prizes. After the awards ceremony, as expected, there were songs and toasts by the fire, on which an appetizing porridge was prepared.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of the organizers and participants we had a lovely holiday of health and spirit!.
