Britain's 2007 cheese race in Brockworth

May 28, 2007 at 5:38 PM   |   Comments

BROCKWORTH, England, May 28 (UPI) -- A 19-year-old from Gloucestershire won Britain's 2007 cheese race, in which competitors race a giant wheel of cheese down a steep hill.

Chris Anderson won the final of five races on the 218-yard slope in Brockworth, Sky News reported Monday.

Even though he was chasing a giant wheel of it, he said, "I don't even like cheese much."

About 3,000 people competed in this year's races, which had the fewest injuries organizers have seen in years.

Jason Crowther, who won the first race of the day, now has a hat trick of victories from the past three years. Bruised and battered, the 25-year-old said: "There's no training you can do for this. You have just got to go for it."
