East Frisian Sports
Think East Frisian sports consist of tidelands olympics and teabag throwing? Think again.
Over the centuries Frisians developed a few very special olympic games, and when they’re practising, boy there is not much to be felt of the proverbial Northern coolness. A short introduction to the most important East Frisian games:
|Boßeln is the most well-known game to be played in Frisia. There are car drivers around who can tell you a story or two about it…|
|Klootschiessen is the oldest game, some say it goes back even to the time of the Romans! (Who got involved in a very special way…)|
|Pultstockspringen was the ideal way of taking yourself across East Frisian ditches in former times. Fun and schadenfreude are close during matches in our days.|
|Kreierrennen (Kreier racing) is a typical tidelands game. The vehicles that served fishermen before are used in muddy competitions today.|
