Video: Topless German sledders cheered on by 14,000 spectators

Sledding doesn’t get much colder than this – 26 Germans took to the hills of Braunlange to participate in the yearly topless sledding competition. The 26 men and women were competing for a EUR1000 cash prize.

The rules are simple – participants are only allowed to wear underpants, shoes and protective winter gear.

26-year-old Christian Schmidt won the contest, but the spectators appeared to have more attention for the naked ladies. We’d publish more photos of the event, but they really are not that suitable for a family friendly site…
