Inuit Games

Airplane tests one's strength and endurance. The competitor lays face down on the ground, with his or her arms outstretched. Three carriers lift the competitor by the feet and the wrists and start walking forward. The competitor who can 'fly' the farthest, keeping his or her body rigid and flat (like an airplane), wins. Once the competitor sags or allows his or her body to drop, the turn is over. It's a lot harder than it looks!
