Prize For Carrying your Wife in Finland – The Corporate Commuter

Prize For Carrying your Wife in Finland

Operating an online store means we troll the internet - a lot!
Unfortunately, the desire to procrastinate takes hold every now and again and we’ve managed to build a decent library of (mostly useless) trivial facts.
We’ve decided this knowledge should be shared;  welcome the ‘Friday Fact’.

Today's Fact

  • Did you Know: At the Wife Carrying World Championships in Finland, first prize is the wife's weight in beer.
  • In a bizarre annual race held in Sonkajaervi, Finland, men carry their wives (or a borrowed female) to sprint a 250-metre course with their “wives” holding on (for dear life) to the “husband’s” back.
    This is what it looks like:

    Until next time, have a great Friday
