World Egg Throwing Relay

When I was in grade school we used to have school sporting day and I remember one of the most popular events was running with an egg in spoon.

I thought the egg competition was a grade school activity but Yesterday CNN sports had a report on World Egg throwing championship held in Lincolnshire UK on June 29th.

Participants from 34 countries  competed in the third annual egg throwing championship. Teams of 11 players can enter the “egg-static relay” and attempt to move 12 eggs 100 metres by throwing them between themselves as they stand along the route.

What makes the sport attractive?

According to the World Egg Throwing Federation website,  their sport is enjoyed by over a million people who are drawn by the delight of watching a failure of another to catch a tossed egg.
