Novak Djokovic is known for doing some crazy stuff and his latest #NoleChallenge is no different as he spent the best part of two minutes in a frozen stream in Italy.
The 17-time Grand Slam winner and his friend Costantine decided to brave the icy conditions in South Tyrol for one minute and 45 seconds.
First they put Dutch extreme athlete Wim “The Iceman” Hof’s breathing techniques to use and then braved the cold water.
Here you go.

@iceman_hof how did we do? ❄️🥶🤟🏼 Constantine and I survived this mountain stream for 1 minute 45 seconds.. mindset is everything. The practice of ice baths looks crazy I know 😂 but it’s really beneficial for training the mind and body. Through various techniques (like breathing) we can calm ourselves enough to take on extreme conditions like this and more efficiently battle daily stress in our lives. I use Wim’s methods and find them beneficial for my life overall. “Mind over matter. Brain over body.” I suggest everyone to explore it and hopefully rise to this challenge! For those who dare, I challenge you to find an ICE COLD body of water outside and get in for at least 1 minute: – Must be winter and icy water outside – Must be only in underwear – Must have half the body submerged – Must be in for at least 1 minute Make sure to do your research and prepare as this can be pretty dangerous if you don’t follow Wim’s guidelines. Tag friends to do it with you and use #NoleChallenge when you share so I can see you guys. I’m so hyped for this, let’s goo!!!!!!! Idemooo!! 💪🏼 (I can share the full version of this on FB for #NoleFam if you guys want to see 😂) #iceman #wimhof #life #nature #breathing #meditation #reflect #mindset #justbreathe #wimhofmethod #innerfire #tbt
