THESE bizarre images show North Korean athletes taking part in the country’s version of the Olympics.
The video was taken at the 13th People’s Games at Moran Hill park in Pyongyang, the capital of the communist country.
Competitors from the isolated country can be seen balancing on top of a seesaw and jumping up and down.
The rules of the see-saw event require competitors to consecutively jump over two-metres high for a duration of two minutes, and with each jump landing inside a small black square at the end of the see-saw.
The 13th People’s Games run until October 31 and feature a number of traditional Korean games with some, such as the swing and see-saw events, dating back to the Joseon dynasty.
