Slapping is not something anyone is fond of. And, while that might be true for most, you’ll be surprised to know that there is something called ‘slapping championship’ that actually exists where contestants have to repeatedly slap each other.

According to a report in Scroll, a ‘Male Slapping Championship’ took place recently in Krasnoyarsk in Russia. The contest was basically about two men confronting each other across a table and exchanging slaps repeatedly until one of them gave up. Apparently, the championship was part of the Siberian Power Show sports festival.


The report further revealed that the victor walked home with 30,000 rubles (approximately Rs 32,000). This year’s winner was Vasiliy Kamotskiy.

Take a look at some videos from the event.
