Pole dancers in China have been showing off their talent in freezing conditions - to beg people to stop giving them the cold shoulder.

China now has a national pole dancing team for competitions, but the activity is frowned upon across the country as a part of the sex industry.

So the country's national squad - featuring three women and one man - are trying to show that their exhibitions are every bit as athletic as gymnastics.

"We train just like athletes. There's nothing sexy about what we do. It's a sport like gymnastics," explained squad member Song Yao.

"If people would shed their prejudices and just watch us , they'd see we're not sleazy."

"They seem to be very dedicated. Those poles must be freezing in this weather," commented one spectator.

To welcome the 2013 third Pole Dancing Championship, Yi Fan, leader of China's national pole dancing team, and her team mates Cao Nuo and Song Yao take part in a photoshoot set in the cold of mid-winter on Jan. 28, 2013.

They hope the heyday of pole dancing will arrive sooner rather than later and its competition will witness more outstanding dancers.
