The Shin-Kicking Olympics

Who needs legit sports when you’ve got the shin-kicking Olympics? Held in Gloucester, England, the rules are very basic: Kick your opponent’s shins until he falls to the ground. Let the games begin!

A judge explains the specifics:

“I kind of get quite annoyed when people think that shin kicking is quite literally two guys facing each other and kicking each other as hard as possible in the shins. The easiest ways to describe it is it’s a bit like wrestling but with a lot of contact below the knees.

“The idea is really to throw the person to the ground, but to throw the person to the ground you’ve got to unbalance by kicking them first.”
