Hundreds of spectators have gathered to watch athletic stunts and animal performances at the Rural Olympic Games in India.
The day featured many acclaimed state level sportspersons but also included a veteran's 100 metres event and dances by trained horses.
Large crowds gathered to watch stuntsmen perform, with one darling competitor, who used his earlobes to pull a car, proving particularly popular.
'I used to earlier pull motorcycles using my ears, after which started pulling cars. I practice a lot at home and sometimes I pull both with my earlobes,' said the stuntman while adding that he often performs the stunt to earn money.
The historic sports meet is held every year to inspire youngsters to take on rural sports.
