    Man Dies After Winning Vodka-Drinking Contest
    Nov 19, 9:35 am ET

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - A vodka-drinking competition in a southern Russian town ended in tragedy with the winner dead and several runners-up in intensive care.
    "The competition lasted 30, perhaps 40 minutes and the winner downed three half-liter bottles. He was taken home by taxi but died within 20 minutes," said Roman Popov, a prosecutor pursuing the case in the town of Volgodonsk.

    "Five contestants ended up in intensive care. Those not in hospital turned up the next day, ostensibly for another drink."

    Popov said the director of the shop organizing this month's contest had been charged with manslaughter. He had offered 10 liters of vodka to the competitor drinking the most in the shortest time.

    Russians drink the equivalent of 15 liters of pure alcohol per head annually, one of the highest rates in the world. Some experts estimate one in seven Russians is an alcoholic.

    I think that it was more a case of alcohol poisoning rather than from being an alcoholic. I'm all for fun times, but there's no need for being stupid about it. I wonder what the first prize was?

    Good for him, drinking isn't what it used to be for myself when back when I was a starting member I would post every time I was wasted and now I can't even go out cause drinking is just plain boring.

    what ever happened to competing in sports and shit..

    One word : Darwinism.

    Come on people, you enter a vodka drinking contest, there are no winners. Let's play russian roulette while we are at it, then put the outcome in the paper as well. If you drink 1.5 litres of Vodka on purpose to win a contest, then the shallow end of that gene pool was almost barren.
