Crazy Sporting Contests
[ more contests ]
In Australia there is a tradition at country fairs to have a throwing competition. The objects that are thrown are usually unusual and can vary from thongs, gumboots, cow pats (cow manure), wives, damper (traditional Australian bread) and rolling pins just to name a few. The aim is just to hurl the object as far as you can.
Example: World Moonrock Throwing Competition
In Hughenden, Queensland Australia, the annual World Moonrock Throwing Competition is held as part of the Richmond Fossil Festival. Hughenden is located halfway between Townsville and Mount Isa. There are separate competitions for men, women and children, in which they throw rocks of various weights. There are also other exciting things to do at the festival.
