This Needs to Become an Olympic Sport

by Joey deVilla on February 21, 2008

The activity depicted in the Chinese propaganda poster shown below needs to be turned into a new Summer Olympics sport:

Chinese propganda poster showing rifle shooters double-riding on a bike, aiming at targets in the distance.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the red text at the bottom translates to “Wolverines!”

Wow, you’re dating yourself with the Wolverines reference.

Spoiler alert…

My source on such things says that the caption reads “The Early Sun Shines on the Practice Field!”

Your source isn’t that far off — it’s best translated as “drill field” instead of practice field. It’s a slogan from either the Cultural Revolution or civil war.
