Haa ha, this is great. I have asked many times in the past "when will extreme wheelbarrowing become a recognized sport?". I never expected extreme digging to get there first! Maybe i need to go talk to the Japanese about extreme wheelbarrowing!

Over a thousand people gathered on the outskirts of Tokyo, shovels in hand, to dig it out for the top prize in the Japan All-National Hole Digging Competition and claim the coveted Golden Shovel award. The contest drew participants from all over the country to test their hole-digging prowess and claim awards not only for the deepest hole, but also for most creative hole and the most original costume worn during the digging.

Check out the video in this link below, its sure to have you in stitches.

So if it takes two men two days to dig a hole, how long does it take to dig half a hole? Wink
