Skiers in fancy dress attempted to glide over a 25m (82ft) pool and stay out of its icy depths in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk on Sunday.

The annual competition, known as 'Gornoluzhnik', was held for a thirteenth time this spring.

Although the pool contestants aimed to get over was quite long, some of them managed to literally fly over it.

As footage shows, a man wearing a Grinch costume crossed the pool and hit the fencing on the other side!
