Video: Pig racing at Royal Norfolk Show

Pig farmer and Royal Norfolk Show commentator Peter Mortimer launched the OlymPIGS at Costessey this afternoon.

After the enormous success of the first pig agility and race against the clock on the opening day Waveney Valley farmer Mr Mortimer staged round two of the OlymPIGS in the sunshine.

Crowds gathered to watch the porkers compete for pig podium honours in the 20-metre square arena.

The obstacle course included a pig slalom, bridge and fenced pen before finishing with a 10-second count in a sawdust ring with the quickest competitors completing the course in less than a minute.
