OVASINAX is a newly invented sport (created by Jerome and Lucy Siromani, March 2013). The game is a team sprint race, which is run across three "laps" of a swimming pool, with a man carrying a woman on his shoulders. The name of the sport, Ovasinax, is pronounced “Oh-Vay-Sin-Axe”, and is based on the phrase "ovanpå sin axlar" - Swedish for "atop his shoulders".
