Winter this year has frozen lakes, waterfalls, river and most smaller water bodies in many countries around the world. And many daredevils are using the icy cold weather to attempt some adrenaline rushing stunts. A 54-year-old freediver swam through a frozen Lake Milada in the Czech Republic in just trunks! Petr Kapoun waded through water beneath a layer of ice in crystal clear water.
He broke the ice at two ends, starts at one hole and finishes at the other. A yellow string was put through to guide him the way or help him in case of any mishap. Petr undertook the act in January and now the video has gone viral on social media. The clip shows Petr quite effortlessly swimming through the water with hardly any clothes on.

Reportedly, he said he maintains a diet and is strict with his workout regime that helps him build strength and swim in frozen waters.
