DEMOCRAT OLYMPICS: ‘Laziest Citizen’ Contest Has People Lying Down for 20 Days — and Counting; Lying Down Contest Enters 20th Day as Competitors Vie for ‘laziest citizen’ record

‘Laziest Citizen’ contest has people lying down for 20 days — and counting:
No matter how lazy you are, you’re sure to look extremely productive compared to these “competitors.”
Seven competitors are hoping to get the coveted title of “Laziest Citizen” in a bizarre annual contest in the resort village of Brezna in northern Montenegro.
The remaining contestants — who are vying for a grand prize of $1,070 (1,000 euro) — have been lying down on mats for 20 straight days and counting, and they’re determined to keep going despite already smashing last year’s record of 117 hours.
First-time contestant Filip Knezevic, 23, told Reuters that he’s confident he’ll be the one to claim victory.
“We have everything we need here, company is fantastic, time goes by quickly,” he said.
Simply sitting up is a violation of the rules, as is standing, and will immediately eliminate a contestant, though they do get a 10-minute bathroom break every eight hours. --->READ MORE HERE

Lying down contest enters 20th day as competitors vie for ‘laziest citizen’ record:
Seven competitors lying down on mats are vying for the coveted title of “Laziest Citizen” after smashing the previous record in a satirical contest held annually in a holiday resort in northern Montenegro.
A lying down record of 117 hours was set at last year’s contest in the resort village of Brezna, but as this year’s competition entered a 20th day on Thursday, the remaining contestants said they were determined to keep going.
“All of us feel good, excellent, there are no health problems, they are pampering us, all we have to do is to remain lying down,” said 2021 champion Dubravka Aksic, 38.
The contest was launched in the tiny Adriatic country 12 years ago to mock a popular myth that labels Montenegrins as lazy, said Radonja Blagojevic, the organizer and owner of the resort.
She said the seven remaining contestants from a starting field of 21 had been lying down for 463 hours so far. --->READ MORE HERE
