Getting run over by a tractor is just one of the many exciting events at the Indian Rural Olympics

Yes, this is actually an event at the Indian Rural Olympics, held each year in Kila Raipur, near Ludhiana, India: and if this guy didn’t win a gold medal, I’d hate to see who did.

These are the Olympics in which villagers display their strength in appalling interesting ways, such as allowing a tractor carrying three adults pass over them. The sports festival features major Punjabi rural sports including Bullock cart race, tug-of-war, tractor race and events for the disabled, among others.

Also there was this event (I have no idea).
