first Israeli olive pit spitting competition

 

Contestants at Israel's Kibbutz Givat Brenner sent olive pits flying in a new fun competition.
 
For the first time in Israel, contestants had a chance to break the world olive-pit spitting record (21.20 meters, or 96.5 feet).
 

 
 
 
Israel´s first olive-pit spitting contest, organized in February under the auspices of the International Federation of Pit Spitting, attracted both tourists and Israelis, each of whom got three tries. The clear winner was (drum roll, please) Itzhak Hazan with a 10.9-meter (35.7-foot) spit.
