    Crowds Drawn to Pig Olympics in China

    SHANGHAI, China - These pigs run, jump and swim almost anything but fly. Thousands of Shanghai residents have turned out to a city park to watch a herd of pigs compete in what organizers are calling the "Pig Olympics."

    They run over hurdles, jump through hoops, dive and swim in shows twice a day, according to the Shanghai Daily newspaper.

    The pigs, a midget species from Thailand, begin training soon after birth and can start performing after they are 12 months old.

    Oh, they are so cute. The LA county fair has pot belly pig races and you can bet on the pigs, if your pig wins you get a lb. of bacon. They are supposed to be very smart and you can potty train them.
