Some dude tore his calf muscle to set a new cheese-chasing record

June 3, 2018 VIDEOS


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.
