The recent relentless frigid weather in northern Vietnam has compelled many shooters to resort to covering themselves in blankets to keep warm during their training sessions.

Waves of cold fronts and drizzling rains have tormented northern Vietnam in recent days, with temperatures dropping to around 10-13 degrees Celsius.

This adverse weather condition has impacted the daily activities of many individuals, including athletes of the national and local teams. 

Many athletes have dealt with muscle stiffness when training in low mercury.

To surmount this challenge and adhere to their training routines, members of the Hanoi shooting team devised an innovative solution: they covered themselves with blankets during practice.

Images of the team training while getting covered head-to-toe in thick blankets draw great attention on the Internet.

Athletes in outdoor sports such as track and field, and even indoor activities like taekwondo, have opted for layering up as their preferred solution during training.
