This Christmas marathon held in the city of Omsk, Russia, was really freezing cold. It's an annual event but this year it was -30C on January 7th. Despite the cold 707 participants from ten countries of the world and
fifteen regions of Russia came to Omsk to show results. The Omsk region itself was represented by 619 runners. The sports program included the races for 21,1 km and 7 km and a Christmas relay.
Drug-addicts, alcoholics and nymphomaniacs are treated in a special way - by a whip. People's addictions are litterally whipped out. One patient, whose name is Natalia, is addicted to heroine, she says
it's the only method that helps her to struggle her addiction. She is sure she would die without it. People come there voluntarily and even pay for that. Each session costs 95 USD.
