Men and women from all corners of South America traveled to Buenos Aires yesterday for the 2013 Miss Pole Dance South America competition, and that name is obviously a little misleading since there are both men and women competing. But this isn’t as much about competition as it is about promoting a sport – that’s right, I said sport. That’s because the world’s greatest pole dancers are still lobbying for this artistic feat of strength that just so happens to be most popular in strip clubs to become an Olympic sport, and I’m honestly kind of shocked that Putin hasn’t forced this into the Sochi Winter Games.
The Mirror has an incomplete breakdown of the winners, but if you ask me, everyone who competed at this event is a winner in his or her own right. Because one day, there might be a massive flood or a really windy storm, and only these pole dancers are going to be prepared to hang on to metal rods for an extended period of time.
