The "Lazy Olympics" - sign us up!

 

There's an Olympic event taking place in the small European nation of Montenegro and it's one that actual athletes are not competing in. Some of the world's least athletic people are taking part in the second annual International Lazy Olympics.

The Lazy Olympics features only one "event," because it's all the lazy organizers could come up with. Competitors will lie in a park under a shady tree. That's it. The winner will receive a $500 prize, although determining the winner will be tough because there is no official set of rules and organizers are too lazy to figure out how to choose a winner.

In fact, organizers will be lying under the tree with the participants. Those taking part in the Lazy Olympics were hoping it would receive more attention, but they never got around to publicizing it. Last year's winner spent 32 hours being lazy under the tree. Good luck to all the competitors.
