Freezing temperatures were no deterrent to naked sledging enthusiasts who threw themselves down the snow capped slopes in Braunlage, Germany, on Saturday.
Saturday's fourth annual naked sledging event in Braunlage attracted 30 competitors brave enough to strip off amidst the snow covered Harz mountains. Even more amazing, their antics drew a massive crowd of around 25,000 fans showing their support for the bare bodied sledgers, via a live web stream.
The Local reported that in spite of the freezing temperatures 17 men and 13 women, including porn star Mia Magma, bared all, maintaining only the modesty allowed by undies, helmets and shoes, which the sledgers are obliged to wear as a safety requirement. A 37-year-old man from Hanover sled off with the first prize. Fans of the sport even hope to turn it into a Winter Olympic event.
Germans are avid fans of naked sports. Digital Journal reported last year that German hikers were particularly bereft when a ban on naked hiking was implemented in some regions of Switzerland.
Here's a glimpse of the 2011 event, which attracted 14,000 spectators, indicating just how much the naked sport is gaining in popularity each year.
