British weather is amazingly cold at this time of year. If youâ€™re a sportsman, itâ€™s a tough time to keep up your training. However, dedicated athletes will keep going whatever the condition. And if some of those athletes are dedicated Doctor Who fans, then they may just try and mix their two favourite passions together, as one person has done!
A picture has surfaced at www.boingboing.net of a swimmer taking part in the UK Cold Water Swimming Championships at the Tooting Bec lido in London and whilst others may want to wear a small red or blue swimming cap on their heads; this particular competitor has decided to sport a â€œCybusâ€ Cyberman one instead!
How it keeps his hair protected is anyoneâ€™s guess though…
It begs the question, what other Doctor Who icons could be included as a sports piece? Cybermat Tennis rackets perhaps? Or maybe The Hand of Fear boxing gloves?
A wealth of comments were left including:
â€œDelete the other competitors. Victory is assured.â€
â€œYou know, they never did explain what happened to the real cybermen, as opposed to the alternate reality ones.â€
Thereâ€™s always one!
