Australian Wife Carrying Championships

This weekend, the NSW town of Singleton hosts what I assume would be the pinnacle of its town calendar – the Australian Wife Carrying Championship. According to News Limited, 25 teams will participate in the festivities.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to drive up to Singleton to be immersed in the spirit of this sport, but thanks to the 2GB Continuous Call Team, who will be broadcasting live from a Mack semi-trailer from midday to 5pm tomorrow at the Singleton showground, we all can imagine what it must be like to carry a woman with the Estonian carry style through a myriad of obstacles.

Congratulations in advance to the winners, and good luck to all who will be participating.
