Snowball Throwing in the Olympics?

I’m pretty sure by now; most of the country has been hit with snow! But when’s the last time you’ve actually HIT someone WITH that snow?

That’s right; I’m talking about a good old snowball fight! When’s the last time you’ve had some childish fun and gotten into a fun friendly snowball fight with your friends, or heck even your own family? I know it’s been a while for me, but maybe it’s about time, gotta do something with all this snow out there.

The snow has fallen at the perfect time though, just in time to get us all excited about the Winter Olympics this year being held in Vancouver Canada! Coca-Cola also wants you to get excited about the Winter Games and wants you to get excited by helping them get Snowball throwing into the Winter Olympics……

Yea ok, not really but Coca-Cola does have a funny online parody called “International federation of Snowball Throwing” or IFST. This campaign is built around a global television commercial called “Snowball” which features reps from different countries participating in a spontaneous snowball fight.

The IFST is an “organization” created to rally support from citizens of the world who love throwing snowballs and want to see snowball throwing added to the Olympics. The IFST supports snowball throwing in various forms, including individual accuracy competitions, team events and even competitions with ‘fake’ snow. Any competition involving a handmade ball made of soft, crystallized precipitation is recognized as an official sport by the International Federation of Snowball Throwing. Skill levels ranging from world-class athletes to anyone who loves to throw things are welcome.

Take a peek at the family friendly website snowballthrowing.com and have some fun, don’t forget to sign the petition when you’re there. You can watch some really funny videos, or even get some helpful fun tips on how to throw and make the perfect snowball!



Coca-Cola wanted to share the fun of the Winter Olympics with my readers and have agreed to have two lucky winners from A Wrestling Addicted Mommy win a 2008 Beijing Olympics Collector’s Bottle as well as an IFST Official T-Shirt.
