(DAILY MAIL) — Hundreds of South Korean and US Marines braved subfreezing temperatures as they took part in winter training exercises on Tuesday.

Photos show shirtless soldiers wrestling, doing press-ups and snow sport exercises in the eastern mountainous region of Pyeongchang, South Korea, some 180 kilometers east of Seoul.

More than 220 South Korean Marines and 220 US Marines took part in the drill, which comes less than two months before the Winter Olympic Games set to be held there in February.
