Finland has some strange sports

200 teams play Swamp Soccer – i.e., they play it in a swamp filled with mud. 

Since 1995, they have held the Mosquito Killing World Championships, the winner of which kills the most bugs in five minutes

They stopped  the World Sauna Championships in 2010 because a competitor died from third-degree burns. 

The winner of the wife-carrying races receives the wife’s weight in beer.

They hold air guitar contests.

They have just started to compete in hobbyhorsing, wherein competitors trot and hurdle obstacles while riding the wooden toys.
