No Comment TV

Not too long ago here on Video Friday, we had No Comment when Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti banned chess. For this post, we have 'No Comment TV'.

Russia: Icy water chess tournament (0:53) • 'Russian winter swimmers found a new way to build up their stamina and concentration - by playing chess in icy water.'

The video's description continued,

In a lake in Russia's Ural mountain region swimmers plunged into water of around 5 degrees Celsius for a chess game that tested their mental and physical strengths. No Comment is brought to you by Euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe.

If you're metric-challenged, five degrees Celsius is around 40 degrees Fahrenheit. However you measure it, it's cold.
