It’s been a while (perhaps too long) since we have run anything outrageously frivolous as a Beer O’Clock post. It’s not quite The Muppets Singing Bohemian Rhapsody or Cats Re-enacting Lost, however, this clip is equally compelling. In fact, no matter how much you might cringe, we guarantee you’ll find it almost impossible to look away.
Indian Pole Gymnastics
As sporting pursuits go, it is hard to find something more challenging than climbing a pole. To use that pole for acrobatic purposes,well, that’s something else again.
The art of Mallakhamb is respected as a competitive sport all over India. Gymnasts have 90 seconds to show off bendy Herculean routines, which are then judged. Mallakhamb can take place on an erect wooden pole, on a rope or, for the real show-offs, a stack of glass bottles!
Think about that as you settle into Beer O’Clock. Happy Friday Anthillians.
