Sub-Zero Soldiers

U.S. marines are pushed to the limit on brutal training exercise at South Korean ski resort.

Around 400 marines from the US and South Korea braved bitterly cold weather for a joint training exercise.  It was all to test their limits in extreme conditions.

It took place at a ski resort in Pyeongchang, east of Seoul.

They had to walk through icy water, do push-ups and throw snow on their bodies.  The exercises run from February 4 to February 22.  It also involves firearms training, military skiing, ice diving and alpine climbing. 

All of this training comes amid rising tensions in the region after North Korea vowed to hold more rocket and nuclear tests.
