Wife carrying championship takes place in the three-day festival in Sonkayarvi, Finland, and this year it took place on July 6.
This bizarre competition is that a man should cover the distance of 253.5 meters with a “wife” on his shoulders, and she it’s time to hang it upside down.
Women participating in the championship as cargo must be over 17 years old, and their weight must not be less than 49 kg. Not come? Do not worry, the participants, in fact, do not have to be married. Here is a series of funny photos that did during the World Cup this year, the Finnish photographer Roni Rekomaa.
