Icebears Hintertux was voted as the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year in a global online poll, nominated by the World Open Water Swimming Association:
Josef Köberl, president of the Ice Swimming Association Austria, loves the extreme. He loves the cold and pushing himself and sharing his passion with other like-minded athletes. So he organizes the Austrian Ice Swimming Championships and created the Icebears Hintertux, a 4-day high-altitude glacier training camp that is held in Hintertuxer Gletscher in Austria. The two workouts daily camp offers both extreme ice swim and pool training sessions. For organizing and teaching interested swimmers how to acclimate and train in high-altitude extreme conditions, for safely organizing glacier swims in a uniquely beautiful ice chamber in 0°C water and 0°C air at 4200 meters altitude, and for meeting the needs of channel swimmers and ice swimmers and pushing their physical and mental boundaries, the Icebears Hintertux camp by Josef Köberl is a worthy nominee for the 2018 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
