German Mud Olympics 2010

The German Mud Olympics are called Wattolympiade. It's an annual event held near Hamburg since 1978. More than 400 competitors have battled it out in a range of sports at the Wattoluempiade (Mud Olympics) in Hamburg, Germany. The Mud Olympics are held each year on the mudflats of the river Elbe and organisers say the weather this year was a good combination of warm and wet. Events included football and volleyball matches as well as bicycle races… all on mud. Other events included skiing competitions, where, you guessed it, dirty racers competed on mud rather than snow.
