London's dung-spitting competition draws support, criticism

June 17, 2000
Web posted at: 12:52 a.m. EDT (0452 GMT)

LONDON (CNN) -- Dung-spitting seems unlikely to ever gain acceptance as an Olympic sport, but you never know.

After all, contestants recently gathered in London for what was not the first but the second annual round of dung-spitting championships.

The fast-growing sport, which originated in Africa and begins with a fierce challenge for the best dung available, has drawn both support and criticism.

The support comes from those who say the contest is nothing but good "clean" fun. Critics say it's simply disgusting.

Watch Correspondent Amanda Kibel's report.
