For the thirteenth time, drag queen and king athletes from around the globe will flock to Amsterdam to compete in the world’s one and only drag sporting event, The Drag Olympics.

Thousands of spectators will cheer on these seasoned sportswomen and men, who will fight it out in the categories Stiletto Sprint, Handbag Throw, Bitch Volleyball, Hula Hoop and, for the first time, Equestrian Dressage (horse training).

Jennifer Hopelezz will once again bring the Olympic Flame to The Netherlands for the last leg of the torch relay. Starting in Mount Olympus, the torch relay members this year include international celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Sieneke.

Jennifer: “We’re expecting record numbers of contestants for 2017. The competition just gets more brutal each time. Last year’s Gold Medal winner, Ms. Dynno Dada, hailing from Greece, will be back defending her title. Don’t be fooled by her svelte figure, she cut her teeth in Greco-Roman wrestling and knows a thing or two about bear hugs and headlocks.”

Silver medalist Zhanna from Ukraine is also expected to make an appearance, she’s just waiting for the authorities in her home country to finish switching urine samples before she gets the final go-ahead.

 Anyone can take part in the Olympics, just be sure to bring your own heels, wig and frock. Registration is on the night itself from 5 p.m. till 6:30 p.m. and the thirteenth Drag Olympics begin at 7 p.m. sharp Friday, 4th August. Make-up artists are available for cosmetic assistance. More info at
