Spoeg sport pret

Piet Pretorius in action at the Weenen Wildsfees, showing he has what it takes to ‘bokdrol spoeg’.  So what is bokdrol spoeg?

Kudu dung spitting (bokdrol spoeg in Afrikaans) is a sport practiced by the Afrikaner community in South Africa.

During a competition, hard little pellets of dung from a kudu (a type of antelope) are spat, with the person who spits the furthest being the winner. Kudu dung spitting is popular enough to have an annual world championship competition, with the formal sport beginning in 1994. Unlike many similar sports, the distance is measured from the marker to the place the dung pellet comes to rest, rather than where it initially hit the ground.

The world record in this sport is a distance of 15.56 metres, set in 2006 by Shaun van Rensburg.
