Weird Olympic Sports

Skijoring

This is real. Skijoring is a real sport that many, many people still participate in. As shown above, its an activity that involves strapping your feet to skis and your torso to dogs and then going as fast as you can. In fancier locales, horses may be used instead of dogs. You can also (obviously) use a snowmobile, though that would sort of take the sport out of it, wouldnt it? Skijoring made only one appearance in the Olympics at the 1928 Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Being one of the aforementioned fancier locales, the athletes were towed behind horses without riders, and for some reason, the race was held on a frozen lake, where there were no jumps. Switzerland swept the race, though it didnt really matter since it was just a demonstration event.
