Chinese Iceman 'Chen Kecai' takes world's longest Ice-bath

Jin Songhao and Chen Kecai, two well known "ice-men" from china, managed to break Dutch Iceman Wim Hofs world record for the longest ice bath by immersing himself in ice for 120 minutes while Chen lasted for 118 minutes.Earlier Wim Hof spent New-Year’s Eve covered with ice cubes, and claimed the title of the longest ice bath, with 115 minutes.

The stage was set publically on January 3rd, in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, where both immersed themselves in plastic boxes and were covered with ice cubes, up to their necks. It was very tough because Chen Kecai started shivering after “just” 40 minutes, but he was willing to keep himself in. Finally after staying 118 minutes in cubes he again got the first place in world record for ice bath.
