Olympic speedskater Brian Hansen takes the ice on Milwaukee harbor

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Three-time Olympic speedskater Brian Hansen hit the lake ice in front of the Milwaukee Art Museum last weekend.

It had frozen over solid, offering him the perfect opportunity to fly across the frozen water.

But do not try this home! Not only is Hansen a professional, he wore a wetsuit and his friend wore a life jacket. 

They also tested the ice with police and had a throw rope and ice awls just in case.
