Russians have a fairly unique sense of humor, and the proliferation of cheap portable cameras has finally allowed their antics to be shared with the world. In this case some ice fishermen got tired of fishing and decided to create their own version of the biathlon with shotguns and what appear to be bottles for targets.
Traditionally, the biathlon is a cross-country ski race in which contestants periodically stop to fire .22 rifles at targets 50 meters away. These Russians forsook their skis for boots and rimfires for shotguns, and tossed in obstacles like opens holes in the ice and random trash strewn about.
The result is quite the sight—and it looks quite unsafe. What do you think? Would you participate?
