Students from Indonesia show serious guts as they test their skills with a real life fireball.
According to the school’s spokesman, the fireball tournament was created for students who craze soccer.
The spokesman added: “The tournament is held to celebrate students birthdays here at the boarding school. We say a prayer for the students before they start the tournament.”
Players who embark on this special tourney have their bodies covered in a mixture of salt and herbs to prevent burns from the fiery ball.
“This is very different to playing football with a normal ball,” said a tournament participant. Setting the ball on fire makes it more fun.”
There’s has to be a different way to celebrate a birthday, right? Say, a nice birthday cake?
