Watch: NATO friends and allies fight it out

Take note – story published 7 years ago

Military personnel from the Baltic states and beyond have been competing against each other at the Baltic Military Winter Games in Latvia. 

As well as obvious sports such as biathlon, skiing and ice hockey, a total of around 220 troops also took part in more esoteric activities such as ice fishing -- with use of depth charges and torpedoes strictly outlawed.

Latvia hosted the first such games in 2014, so this is basically the same as the Olympic games returning to Greece.

NATO has made a promotional film about the games, which you can watch below.
