Earthing- The new age sport that supports environment and wildlife: Mark Aaron Saus devised Earthing, a unique sport that mixes running and swimming. It is not a biathlon, but rather a power running contest over 110 metres. The earthing winner is the fastest person on Earth, both on land and on water. This sport first appeared in Denmark during the summer of 2013.
Earthing has combined the two most popular Olympic sports, sprinting and swimming, into one explosive race. Earthing is the pursuit of the quickest human on the planet; running on the surface, flying in the air, and paddling through the water.
Earthing- The new age sport that supports environment and wildlife: Competition
The full-size (length) turf field is 60 metres long, with a barefoot sprinting surface. There are temporary target discs at the ending of the running lanes, which are connected to a 50m wading pool. The dive must begin with the foot inside the target disc. The winner is the one who is the first to hit the wall at the close of the swim.
The long sprinting track is 60 metres long. The length of a short course circuit is 30 metres. The track has a non-slip, non-abrasive elastomeric surface suited for running barefoot; aquatic footwear will be produced in the not-too-distant future. Temporary target discs are located at the ends of the running lanes. The swimming pool, which is either a 50-metre long track pool or a 25-metre short course pool, is adjacent to the end of the track. Every metre of the first eight metres in the pool is demarcated with lines on the water floor – and, in the future, by directed lasers on the surface – so that the player can calculate the distance of the soaring dive.
Taking into account the world record long jump of 8.95 metres. This indicates that it is possible to compete at the top or Olympic level (G8). A long course earthing track is 110m long, whereas a short course is 55m long. Earthing has created a 400m Earthing range in the future.
Earthing tournaments will be held at least once a month. The competitions are intended to activate the ecological awareness and knowledge that Earthletes have gained throughout training sessions, in addition to bringing Earthletes and their family and friends around.
One method is to have competing Earthletes select which cause they wish to “Earth” for, such as ecological reasons such as oceans, forests, animals, or climate variability. Each Earthlete gets an equal part of the earnings produced at a tournament based on ticket sales and sponsorships.
Following the completion of the tournament, each Earthlete’s portion of the proceeds is donated to his or her chosen cause or organisation. As a result, all competitors
Athletes win because they have the opportunity to have a feeling of giving back to the Earth by participating in sports. Another facet of Earthings’ inclusion is that any Earthlete can progress at her or his speed while still winning. Along similar lines, Earthing resonates with youngsters, who are sometimes reluctant to participate in sports, for example, because they are fearful of continually losing and/or since their weight hinders them from going fast.
