Since there's no Olympics this year, we're closely following the Wife Carrying World Championships in Helsinki Finland.
Couples race around an 800-foot obstacle course with the wife being carried upside down. The woman's legs remain clasped around the husband's neck during the entire race.
Contestant Matt Witko from England says his real wife was forced to drop out at the last minute. But, he was quickly inundated with offers from other women willing to be carried. He ended up with a wife who was "borrowed" from a good friend. In the end, Witko and his "wife" came in third, behind contestants from Estonia and Finland.
Thousands of people flock to the event each year. It was inspired by a 19th century Finnish legend about wives being 'stolen' from neighboring villages.
