(Scroll down for video) A new sport has popped up.

It is a sport where people jump into freezing cold snowy water for a chance to win the top prize.

Some sports fans have found a new and exciting sport to get involved in. It’s called “snow swimming.“ It is the world’s first “swimming snow race."

Brave contestants got into bathing suits and jumped into the freezing snowy water when they got the go-ahead. They swam till the predetermined finish line and then they turned back to the starting point.

The person who got to the finish line first, was declared the winner. So far, the sport has only been played in Finland.

Now, sports fans want “snow swimming” to become an Olympic sport.
