Carrying Your Wife Sport In Finland


First introduced in Finland, wife carrying is an actual sport where male competitors race while carrying a female teammate. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle course in the fastest time. Once they have passed the first course they must drink a whole bottle of local brewed beer before moving onto the next one. Major competitions are held in Sonkajarvi, Finland, Monona, Wisconsin and in Marquette, Michigan.

Talk about tough love.
