Moscow will host the first in the world history pigball match

The Federation of Sportive Pig-breeding, founded by a group of devotees, is organizing pig races. The special "pigdrome", 150 meters long, has been built for the contestants. 15 swine of the "military" breed will take part in a heat.

"These swine are long-legged, lean, nimble, in good sportive form and craving for victory," said a veterinary and since recently a coach Sergei Spirin, an organizer of the races.He said that the contestants were coached daily. "The conditioned and unconditioned reflexes play an important role in coaching. The swine don't have a feed before the start and get a carrot at the finish. The grunt of the contestants' mom also cheers them up", explained Mr. Spirin.Besides the races for the carrot prize, the swine will play pigball. "We failed to train them how to kick goal, and one team will have just to drive the ball into the territory of another team, like in rugby," said Sergei Knyazev, the vice-president of the Federation of Sportive Pig-breeding.As he explained to RIAN, the animals identify the players of their own team by smell. Each team will have five swine. The contests will be held on June 4-5 in the Moscow's pavilion "Crocus-Expo".
