Honey Boo Boo attended the fifth annual National Redneck Olymp-Hicks in Augusta, Georgia, on Saturday, and won a medal for her dance moves.

The athletic tournament includes competitions for the biggest beer belly, redneck belly-flop, loudest belch, and the by far most daunting “bobbin for pig’s feet”.

Honey Boo Boo, 7, donned a frilly outfit with matching pants and tank top for her day of athletic competition and mud sliding fun.

The former pageant clearly having the time of her life as she skidded down a make shift water slide, constructed out of a plastic tarp and covered in brown mud.

Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, even enjoyed a dip in the belly flopping pools, which were simply large holes dug into the ground and filled with muddy water.

Midway through the day of competitive redneck challenges Honey Boo Boo took a break and enjoyed an icy treat, which seemed to be a departure from her normal diet of “sketti” and caffeine-infused “go-go juice”.


Meanwhile, her sister Anna “Chickadee” shined on the winner’s podium as her daughter Kaitlyn won an award for “cutest redneck baby”.

As the day progressed the girls took to the sidelines to watch the tournament’s main event, belly flopping.

After their day of fun, Honey Boo Boo was spotted rinsing off the mud and grime with the aid of a fire truck’s hose.

But this was not the first time the famous girl and her family have attended the Olymp-Hicks games.

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars famously competed in last year’s tournament, and even participated in the “bobbin’ for pig’s feet” event – which consists of fishing for raw uncooked swine limbs swimming in a plastic bucket full of murky water with one’s teeth.

During a taping for an episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Mama June, aka June Shannon, said of last year’s event: “It’s just like the Olympics except for a lot of missing teeth and butt cracks showing.”

She added: “There are some broke down people out there.”

June Shannon, 33, first shot to fame after her daughter  Alana won national attention with her appearance on the reality show Toddlers and Tiaras before landing their own programme.

The redneck tournament, held in a field beside Augusta’s Savannah River Lock and Dam hosted thousands of attendees over the weekend.

In addition to the impressive and muddy feats performed, Olymp-hicks included a fair where youngsters, and anyone less interested in getting dirty, could take a ride down an inflatable slide, among other attractions.

An appropriate addition to the day’s fun was the actual car, the General Lee, from the 1980s television series The Dukes of Hazzard.
