No Way!! Ha Ha Ha North American Wife Carrying Championship: Finnish couple wins 2012 title and her weight in beer
Plenty more photos and a video at link. We are a nutty bunch, human beings.
Travelling from Helsinki where they won the World Wife Carrying Championship in July, Taisto Miettinen and Kristina Haapanen powered through the 260-yard course in 52.58 seconds’ time on Saturday.
Powering past hurdles, sand traps and a water hole – along with at least 50 other registered contestants – the couple carried home the woman’s weight in beer and five times her weight in cash.
