The Pig Olympics

It is reported that thousands of Shanghai residents have turned up to a city park this week, to watch a herd of pigs compete in the "Pig Olympics".

The pigs compete in a number of competitions including; running over hurdles, jumping through hoops, diving and swimming.

The pigs are a midget species from Thailand, and begin training soon after birth. They can begin performing professionally from about one year of age.

One citizen of Shanghai is quoted as saying:

"It's incredible..I never thought that a pig could be so clever, dexterous and versatile."

They sound infinitely preferable to some of the human athletes, who compete in the Olympics.
