Toe-Wrestling has new champion

Competitors literally went at it toe to toe last weekend at the annual World Toe-Wrestling Championships in Ashbourne, England. The competition is now in its 14th year and the rules are pretty self-explanatory.

After being checked for foot hygiene, two bare-footed competitors cross toes before trying to force each other off the "toedium".

Although more international competitors have been making the pilgrimage recently, including some from Australia and the US, this year's main event was between two locals - defending champion Paul "The Toeminator"' Beech and veteran Alan "Nasty" Nash.

The contest was so tight, in fact, that it had to go to a judges' decision. He concluded that Nash had the more "toe-tal" package, and he would walk away with this year's trophy, and his fifth World Championship.
