HEBRON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Next summer the 2012 summer Olympics will be under way in London bringing together athletes from around the world.
Over the weekend, there was a very different type of Olympics held here in Maine.
The Redneck Olympics kicked off Friday and was welcomed by hundreds of people that came as far away as Mississippi. But don't expect to see these games next year in London. Games like the Mud Run and Tire Popping aren't as much of a competition as they are just for a good time.
Some other notable games that were played include the wife carrying competition, toilet seat horseshoes, the greased watermelon haul, and bobbing for pigs feet.
The games wrapped up on Sunday.
