Daredevils: The Ice Man
Daredevil Wim Hof is going to run a full 26-mile marathon clad in only shorts 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle. He currently holds nine world records for exposure to extreme cold but this awe inspiring act of endurance surpasses all his previous adventures and could cause serious damage to his body as he is exposed to temperatures of -25C for more than four hours.
His preparations in Amsterdam will include taking midnight dunks in freezing canals and meditating in a meat freezer. For this attempt, he is taking on a level of exposure to cold that’s twice as long as anything he has ever previously attempted.
This film reveals what motivates this gregarious extrovert to push his mind and body to the outer limits.
