Calling all Contortionists

Quite possibly a competition where drugs have no place.

is this a combative sport like boxing or is it more a team effort as in synchronised swimming? I like it either way as long as there are strict rules and penalties for grabbing and pinching.

No fighting, no team playing, either. Last one standing, or turned all sideways--whatever--so long as their bum doesn't hit the ground.

I mean are there two competitors competing against each other or are the players on the same team looking for points?

This is cirque d' soleil

To not answer your question,
Maybe another color and another row of colored dots--this is professional after all.

To answer your question,
Two competitors competing. Maybe three.

oh 3 is better. so, it is competing thats all I needed to know. watch your ears don't get bitten off.

That's a risk these people are willing to take. They're crazy like that.

Definitely better than Greco-Roman wrestling. Though not as good as synchronized swimming.

No no no no!! Biting, pinching and grabbing should be allowed. After all, by putting these in action, the competitors are getting rid of their rivals by using effort and concentration that they could focus on their twister performance. If the two (or three) competitors are allowed to do it, I can't see why this would be unfair! It would definitely make the game more amusing for the tv watchers who, after all, are the target of the marketers investing in the olimpic games.

If you can figure out a way to implement biting, pinching, grabbing, and the like, and have a round last more than five seconds, then more power to ya, 'cause I can't. Plus I'm not a fighter.
