Belly Flopping Should Be An Olympic Sport
While the world is watching some of the best athletes in the world compete at the Olympics in Rio, Norway is hosting an event that more of us “normal” athletes or couch potatoes could participate in. Welcome to the official Belly Flop Competition.
This is a an annual event held in Norway. Swimmers jump off a 30 foot diving board and belly flop down below. Technically they kind of curl up a bit before hitting the water and call it "dødsing" which is pronounced “dudsing” but from 30 feet up, it doesn’t matter how you hit the water, it’s going to sting.
My favorite is the jumper (is that what they’re called?) at the :51 second mark. He goes all out!
I could probably be a gold medalist in this event!!
