In the spirit of the FIFA 2010 World Cup, on the mud flats of Brunsbuettel near Hamburg, Germany holds the annual the Wadden Olympics known as 'Wattoluempiade': translated 'mud Olympics'. 16 teams take part in soccer events as well as volleyball, handball and 'Tampentrecken', a sort of tug-of-war over the river Elbe.
