Red Neck Olympics(RNO)

Harld Brooks is actually hosting a version of the Olympic games in his back yard(Hebron, Maine). He says he was inspired by how the Olympics brought people together. He called it 'The Red Neck Olympics'. However, the USOC didn't like him using the word Olympics in the title because they thought people would think the 'Red Neck Olympics' was affiliated with or part of the 'Olympics'. So he changed it to the 'Red Neck Blank'. There are many categories you could compete in such as daunting quarter meter high dive or the thrilling toilet seat ring toss. Wether or not the Red Neck Olympics require steroid tests is still under speculation.

  1. I think it's a good idea that he did his own "olympics", because it gives these people the oppotunity of participating in a formal sportive event that is not necesarily international.
