The world’s first ‘mermaid swimming’ contest was held in Germany last week, where the states participated against one another.
‘Merthletes’ were aged between eight and 48, swimming either 50 metres (children) or 100 metres (adults) wearing mermaid tails, The Independent reported.
It wasn’t only for women and men also took part.
The states of Bavaria, Thuringia and Baden-Württemberg had two wins each at the end of the day of races.
Organizers claimed this was the first time that ‘Merfolk’ had been put into official competition.
