Watch: This Might Be A New Olympic Sport

Drop knees, not bombs. Free your heel, free your mind. Half a binding, half a brain.

Hey, I didn’t come up with those, just repeating every single chairlift conversation I’ve ever heard whenever a telemarker passes below the lift. That could soon become the latest winter Olympic sport, after FIS announced pushing to include telemark parallel sprinting into the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. Well, if you’ve never even heard of the sport, neither have we, but it seems to be a big enough deal in certain circles to warrant inclusion.

Take a look at the somewhat bizarre combination of skiercross, cross country skiing, and slalom racing. The course starts with a downhill section, followed by a short uphill sprint and a mad sprint on flat to the finish line. It certainly does not look easy, so props to whoever is doing this, it actually does look pretty cool. We know you’re out there somewhere.

I like this sport but no training conditions. http://wingsio0.com

It’s hard to imagine that this orca didn’t know exactly what he was doing when he dragged these two boats together; that was definitely a celebratory jump out of the water at the end! The YouTube description for this video reads, "On July 29, 2018 in the port of Vancouver Island, Canada, an orca caught the anchor chain of a sailboat and had fun pulling the boat several meters to another boat. After the collision of the two boats, the killer whale left after jumping out of the water. Both

Mountain Lion Climbs through Boulder Woman’s Window

This summer we’ve seen an unusually high number of incidents with mountain lions, just recently an Oregon woman found one asleep behind her couch. It turns out locking your doors isn’t enough—they’re climbing through windows now. That’s precisely what happened to a woman in Boulder, Colorado on Friday, when a mountain lion broke into her home and killed her house cat, according to CBS Denver. She arrived home to see the wild animal standing in the middle of her living room, and quickly called
