This link's been making the rounds. Somebody decided that to be well-rounded you should have both brains and brawn, so there's a new sport and it's 100% real. You box for 3 minutes, then play chess for 3 minutes, then box for 3 minutes, then play chess for 3 minutes... And these are legitimate boxers and chess players, not regular people. Pretty cool, I think.
At first I was disappointed since I was hoping it was a bunch of re-enactors who re-enacted famous chess games on a human-sized board and beat the crap out of each other whenever a piece was taken.
No reason it couldn't be done with programming contests instead of chess.
