I agree with Janet, great fun for those who enjoy sports.
I can see that it would be fun to watch, too.
I agree, Nev, it looks very much like pole-vaulting, but I've done a little research. This is known as canal-vaulting and it goes like this:

Wow Hanne, that's fun. ☺☺☺ But I think they did not like it. Patti and Suzy, it's real fun to watch. But I am afraid we don't have the right age for a first try. ☺☺☺

Ohhh yes!! That's what what made the Frisians famous! Long time ago - about 1400 - they conquered our King Hans using this way of moving while the royal Danish army was stuck in mud and lots of iron coats, were tipped off their horses unable to move in the mud! What was left og them fled as well as possible!! Thanks Ank! :-)))

Thanks friends. It is a real fun sport. O yes the champions are very good, no it's better to watch the amateurs. It's big fun to see things going wrong. ☺☺☺

Thanks friends, thanks Linda. "Fierljeppen" is a Frisian word, In Dutch it would be polstok-verspringen.
Translated from Frisian to English it is far leaping.

Canal-vaulting tells exactly what it is. ☺☺☺

Thanks ♥♥♥

Canal vaulting or pole vaulting. Doesn't matter. It looks like a LOT of fun! Love the collage.
