The North University of China in the city of Taiyuan, China, has decided to add a unique event to their track and field event coming up in May.

The university has reportedly decided to host a “grenade-throwing” contest as part of the competition. According to the university, after announcing the contest, students rushed to sign up for the event, which involved tossing a 500-gram grenade.

Students will be throwing weighted replicas of a Type 23 projectile, a wood-handled grenade based on the distinctive German World War II Stielhandgranate, which was later adapted by the Chinese military.
