Yesterday, we learned about pop culture in other countries. Today, it’s time to learn about a pastime further east: Russian baby racing! Yes, we mean the racing of little Russian infants.
The gripping competition in Ekaterinburg, Russia requires babies to crawl 10 meters (33 feet) in under 2 minutes while their parents wave shoes and electronics at them. There is also circus music, a winners’ platform and a quick rendition of “We Are The Champions.” In other words, it is magic.
