Apparently the 0-degree Celsius conditions of Jiangsu province make for the ideal athletics training environment for infants. On Monday morning, a group of 14 kids were spotted running and boxing in various states of undress in the snowy grounds of suburban Nanjing.
The group, aged 3-12, were being coached by one He Lieshing, who for reasons better left unexplored required them to do their exercises while partially unclothed.
After a one-hour warm-up, He had the boys whip off their shirts and the three girls — including his 3-year-old daughter — strip down to their underwear, for the remainder of the training session. Said training comprised of running, clapping exercises, military boxing, and more running for 400m, reports NetEase.
Unbelievably, the whole thing had the parental consent of everyone involved. There was also a doctor lurking on the sidelines in case of emergency (there weren’t any) so that’s good… we guess… (???)
