DM – If you thought some of the events in the London 2012 Olympic Games looked gruelling then think again. These bizarre pictures show competitors taking part in India’s Rural Olympics. And the sports are not for the fainthearted. Games include being run over by farm machinery, bullock chariot racing, horseback acrobatics and other weird demonstrations of strength. Formally known as the Kila Raipur Sports Festival, competitors range in age from teenagers to pensioners. There is even a 100metre race for the over 80s.
Was never a fan of the Olympics. Kinda bores me. I know they’re a big deal but I just can never get hyped for them. India’s Rural Olympics, on the other hand…now that’s more my speed. I don’t need fancy competitions will millions of rules and regulations. Just run some dudes over with a tractor in front of my face and I’ll watch all day. Have an 80+ race so I can watch some geezers limp around for a while. Pick some heavy sh*&t up with your teeth. The key is in the simplicity. I don’t care who wins/survives. It’s about the show, not medals. Squish some bros with farm machinery and have guys fill their mouths with steel and I’m on board 100%. Yeah, harming foreigners for my entertainment. That’s the ticket.
