World Dwarf Games? You Got My Attention


Stretching from July 26th to August 2nd, Belfast, Ireland saw an influx of athletes entering the city. The residents would be forgiven if they didn’t automatically look upon the athletes for their skill, after all, it’s not often that a city sees an influx of hundreds of dwarves all at once.

With hundreds of competitors, from over 20 countries and ranging in age from 2-70, the 5th annual games — held every 4th year in a different locale — were a huge success. Among the events included in the games were track and field stapels like the 10, 20, 40, 60 and 100 meter track races, the tennis ball throw, Frisbee throw, cricket ball throw, shot, discus and javelin. The fun didn’t end at the track though, among the other events there were football, basketball and even that CLASSIC Summer Olympics game, hockey.

Now, I’m not the greatest athlete, but I can at least hold my own in pretty much any game. That said, I think I might get housed by these athletes.

Except the 2 year old, I’d totally CRUSH that kid.
