14,000 spectators watched as 30 contestants raced down a snowy slope topless.  Only in Germany my friends.  Usually contests like this include grossly out of shape and disfigured people that have no business sledding naked.  If you take a look at the NSFW gallery, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the contestants excellent sledding form.

The 26-year-old Christian Schmidt from Blankenburg in Saxony-Anhalt won the race, but the crowd saved much of its applause for a 70-year-old pensioner who spontaneously stripped down to sledge the hill on his own.

Don't cheer 70 year old naked people, you're only encouraging them!  Do you want to ruin this great sport?  Throw snowballs at them until they put clothes back on.
