A Bunch Of Crazy People Throwing Themselves Down A Hill After A Cheese Wheel

May 30, 2018

This is an injury highlight reel from this year's Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling contest near Gloucester in England. The object of the race is to chase a cheese wheel (now a foam replica on account of a nine pound cheese wheel rolling at 70MPH can do some serious damage) down the steep slope of Cooper's Hill. The first one to cross the finish line wins a real 9-pound wheel of double Gloucester. Injuries this year included thousands of bruises, a dislocated shoulder, a torn calf muscle, and countless parents disappointed in their children's decisions.

Keep going for the video, it's a fun one.

Thanks to Shay, who knows what I like, and I liked this.

    Classic. I just saw this video posted in /r/holdmyfeedingtube (which by the way is a real subreddit).

    I like the girl with the broken arm holding her prize with a big grin.

    "Yay I got a $150 wheel of cheese for free and all I had to do was break an arm!"

    I was hoping the kid who shot the first person video on the super long slide in the other article would say that. Alas, he did not.

  • Jenness

    Yes. Yes it does.

  • Big Dog on Krampus
