Dive into the swamp
It is a swimming competition in muddy waters for a distance of about 110 meters, and the only thing that a swamp dive game shares with traditional diving sports is the equipment.

This game is based on trying to throw an egg as far as possible without breaking it. According to Reuters, officials of the International Federation for Egg Throwing confirm that this game first appeared in the fourteenth century, where one of the monks encouraged the townspeople to come to the church by giving them eggs, and when the river overflowed he had to throw eggs from a distance. The longest throw in this game was recorded in 1978 with a length of 98.51 meters.
