On a sunny Saturday morning in Limoux the game of pétanque is a big deal. We can say that pétanque is a south French relative of curling. The goal is to roll the heavy metal balls as close as possible to the small wooden ball called cochonnet, literally meaning – piglet. Victory belongs to the team whose balls will be closer to the "piglet" in the end of the game.
One of the crucial rules of the game states that the throw is made with both feet firmly on the ground. The very name – pétanque – comes from the Occitan pès tancats, meaning feet anchored together.
So the guy on the photo is obviously cheating!
