Dirt dogs

 

It is not a sport you would normally associate with the African continent, but South Africa has been home to an active dryland sledding community for over 30 years. In fact, South Africa hosts its own national championship every year.

While it has remained small, there are approximately 100 active sledders in total, and fairly low key dryland sledding has attracted some negative attention from the NSPCA.

Mainly because as a competitive sport it is considered to be illegal. However, the sledding community is determined to keep this sport alive.
