There’s a sport in Norway that features contestants doing “freestyle dives” off of the 10-meter diving platform. These freestyle dives you might see in the sport of Dødsing aren’t really dives at all. Instead, they’re usually belly flops or back flops.
To be clear, those competing in Dødsing are TRYING to land flat on their back or belly. And, as you can imagine, this hurts – and can injure the contestant. But, of course, it’s all in good fun. (The Ocho)
