Mandsaur: An unusual participant decided to gate-crash a state-level swimming competition in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur on Monday.
Minutes before the event was about to start, a bull managed to gain entry into the premises and jumped inside the pool, even as the shocked organisers looked on.
The other contestants, who were practicing in the pool before the race, rushed out in panic. But the bull didn't seem to mind the fact that it was scaring away others; it was seen having quite a good time in the swimming pool.
It took over an hour, and combined effort by officials and coaches, to coax the reluctant bull out of the pool.
