I had the privilege to talk to Simon about how I personally just love to swim, also long distances and how I will encourage everyone to try it. Winterswimming is healthy. It boosts your immune system, gives you a better sex life, increases your feeling of happiness, eliminate depression and anger, strengthen your heart and circulation and it reduces pain. There is absolutely no reason for not swimMette BL Thomsen VM thumbming – or at least to go into the water in the wintertime.

Personally I am practicing to participate in The Winter Swimming World Championship 2016 in Tyumen Siberia Russia and for the second time to show and prove that I will be able to swim the Endurance distance a 450 meters freestyle in minus 1 degrees water. The distance that no other Danes has done so far.

Mette BL Thomen med bronzemedalje i 450 m is-svømningI also want to participate in all the other distances: a 25 m breast swimming, 25 & 50 m freestyle and the two different medleys.

Trawling around with my motivating pep-talk: “Embracing cold water” in Danish called: “MOD på KOLDT VAND”-  I hope to inspire as many people as absolutely possibly experience the love to dip in cold water and to set any goals and reach them.
