A Failed Winter (and Summer) Olympic Sport from the 1950s

Many don’t know that this failed sport went on to become a lifesaving technique.

That’s right. I bet you didn’t know that the Heimlich maneuver was a failed Olympic Sport.

 

Okay the winter version was better for vegans and vegetarians.

 

Skates on.

Swallow a chunk of pork sausage while skating fast down a long runway CHOKING and carrying a chair.

 

Throw yourself on the chair back just below your rib cage at the end of the runway

EJECTING the chunk of sausage over burning hot coals.

 

Whose ever sausage chunk goes the farthest before bursting into flames gets the Gold.

 

Many participants wear helmets and fire retardant suits in case they fall into the hot coals.

And many wear Hiemy Straps to help prevent accidental rib brakes.

 

Voted as TOO DISGUSTING for the Olympics. Also many broke their ribs with the Hiemy Strap and one person did choke to death because the performed the move incorrectly. A summer version was also tried with the same results.
