Children pour cold water on themselves under the control of fitness coach Margarita Filimonova (R) at local kindergarten number 317, with the air temperature at about minus 23 degrees Celsius (minus 9.4 degrees Fahrenheit), in Russia's Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, February 5, 2013. The programme, which also involves sports training, sauna usage and which has been practiced by the kindergarten for 15 years, improves health and keeps children fit. Children start pouring cold water on themselves outdoors after about three years of training and undergoing medical tests, while the kindergarten is the only one in the region which uses these exercises, according to employees. - Reuters/Ilya Naymushin
