ancientgreeceolympicsThe U.S. may have lost out to sunny Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics, but who needs clothed athletes when you can head out to San Francisco for the Second Annual Nude Beach Olympics? Set to take place October 10th at Baker Beach, participants won’t be competing for gold, silver, or bronze but instead taking a cue from ancient Greece and vying for wreaths made of olive branches.

“Events include the 100-, 500-, and 1,000-meter dashes (though, on foot and in the sand, “dash” may be the incorrect word. Would “jangle” work?); ancient Greek wrestling (“No slugging, kicking, biting, or gouging”); sumo wrestling (same set of forbidden moves); discus (actually, a frisbee is involved); broad jump (nude broad-jumping … make your own pun); volleyball; and touch football.” Link!
