One farmer paid homage to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics by creating his own 'Olympic competition' — the piglet triathlon.
The two-month-old little swines were diving, hurdling and racing across a specially-made obstacle course at Green Island Farm in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province, on Friday.
Yu Xiaobo of the farm is hoping the novel sport will attract visitors to 'Beijing's Northern Door... Еще,' which will host some of the events at the Olympic Games.
Tourists seemed impressed by the athletic prowess of the cute porkers. «The pigs I usually see are stupid and dull. They eat and drink and sleep. This pig, on the other hand, is very clever and cute. It can hurtle, spin and dive,» said one visitor.
