The World Alternative Games presents Wife Carrying like you’ve never seen it!
Wife carrying is a sport that originated in Finland a long time ago. As legend has it, a bandit named Rosvo Ronkainen led groups of men to steal women and other treats from neighboring villages. The damsels in distress normally wouldn’t go willingly so they had to be carried. In preparation for the raids, Mr Ronkainen would make his minions prove their worth; that is, display how fast they could run while carrying a woman. The fastest carriers were allowed to join the gang and participate in the raids. From this tradition of plunder and pillage, we now have the sport of the Gods!
The wife carrying party will include live music, loads of booze, and wife carrying enthusiasts from around the globe! Join us in Wales!
