OMG! Rio Plays Host To The Naked Olympics In Honour Of Ancient Greece…Photos

A group of people ave stripped the Olympic Games right back to basics as they pay tribute to the ancient Greeks by staging their own games – in the nude. The naturists are competing every weekend in a series of high-spirited and energetic contests that toss all inhibitions out of the window.

The organisers of the Abrico Beach ‘Olympic Games’ say anyone can take part – as long as they are prepared to strip off. Naked Olympic ‘events’ include football, beach volleyball, swimming, sprinting and race walking. There are also a few non-Olympic sports such as the tug of war, surfing, which is due to debut at the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo, and Peteca, a traditional game in Brazil which is played with a hand shuttlecock.
