New Drag Olympic Champion Crowned

While those other Games were taking place in Rio de Janeiro, the world’s attention was firmly on the Homomonument in Amsterdam on Friday, August 5, for the twelfth European Drag Olympics.

Twenty-five drag queen and king competitors from around the globe battled it out in five categories - Stiletto Sprint, Handbag Throw, Hula Hoop, Bitch Volleyball and the Tango.

Although the competition was the toughest in years, the organizing committee was thrilled to announce that there were no serious injuries or doping incidents this year, quite a feat in this cut-throat event. There were however reports of wigs set on fire, torn frocks and broken heels in an alleged behind the scenes brawl between some of the girls who disputed the final medal tallying.

Olympic referee Viola Volt declared the Gold Medal winner in the final minutes of nail-biting competition, which this year went to the Greek entrant Dynno Dada. Ms. Dada came from far back in the field to clinch both the Hula Hoop and Tango medals and push out earlier favorites such as Miss Mexico. Runners up contestants were Zhanna from Ukraine, Groningen’s Trés Latraj Magic and last year’s Gold medal winner Aurora T. Addams.
