Japanese office chair racing competition, the players are enthusiastic
Don't believe it, in Hanyu City, Japan, such office chair racing competitions are held every year. 2009 is the first session and has been held for more than 10 years.
The competition method is very simple, the contestants sit back on the office chairs and retreat "drag racing". The threshold for entry is also very low, as long as you have an office chair with a wheel.
Such a game is too suitable for office workers.
Take the 2019 competition, it is divided into two rounds. First, the 56 teams participating in the qualifiers, two by two PK, the winning 28 teams will compete for the championship.
Each team consists of 3 players. They sit on office chairs and need to kick the ground while walking backward. The 3 players had to run like this for 2 hours.
At first glance, this game is a bit incredible. However, both the organizer and the contestants took it very seriously. The organizer even arranged cute mascots and youthful cheerleaders to appear at the competition site and cheer for the players in their unique way.
As for the players, from their expressions, you can feel that they are not sitting on office chairs, but exciting racing cars.
Some of the participating team members also dressed themselves up and played as their favorite cartoon characters. It attracted everyone's attention.
After the game started, the players tried their best to slide backward. The mascots, cheerleaders, and spectators cheered, and the atmosphere was very warm, no less than any major event.
Although the game is interesting, the dangers behind it cannot be ignored. The office chair turns too fast, and players are easily thrown out. Therefore, helmets and knee pads must be prepared.
There is an interesting phenomenon, after 2 hours, the players can still hold, but the office chair is often broken. Therefore, you must choose a good office chair for the competition!
You may ask, are the players fighting so hard because the prizes are set so attractively? No, no, the prize is the rice produced by Hanyu.
Not too good! However, the enthusiasm of the contestants is very high.
Perhaps, the contestants did not come for the prizes, but to relieve the pressure of their usual work and life. In the speed and passion, forgetting the troubles and stress, gliding as much as possible is a healthy way of decompression.
Apart from Japan, these countries have similar competitions
In addition to Japan, many countries have held similar competitions. For example, in Germany, players wear helmets and knee pads, and sit on their office chairs to glide forward quickly. Whoever reaches the finish line is the winner.
In order to reduce the pressure on employees, many companies in China directly held the sliding office chair competition in the office. Sliding around in my office is very interesting.
Some bold friends sat directly in their office chairs and played downhill in the mountains. The stimulus is absolutely stimulating, that is, you need to pay attention to safety. If the brakes are not applied properly, it will be miserable.
The world's great wonders. The office chair, as a companion to the human day and night, is constantly developing other uses, which is also a good thing.
