The third annual "Pig Olympics" have been held in Russia where the pigs might not have flown but they did show their prowess in several activities, BBC News informed.
Some 12 piglets from seven countries took part in the games, which included pig-racing, pig-swimming and pigball.

Pig enthusiasts laid bets on the competitors in each event, at an exhibition centre near Moscow.

Each pig, dressed in a numbered bib, was carried squealing into the arena for each event.

Contestants included Mykola from Ukraine, Nelson from South Africa, and the home favourite Kostik Russisch Schwein.

Alexei Sharshkov, vice-president of the Sport-Pig Federation, which has around 100 members, said the pigs would not be ending up on anyone's dinner table.

"They go on to produce a new generation of sport pigs. They don't get eaten," he said. "How could you eat a competitor who is known around the world?"
