maio 28, 2009

Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake é um evento anual em Gloucester (Inglaterra) em que pessoas tentam pegar um queijo de 3,5 kg, correndo morro abaixo. Clique na imagem abaixo para ver as impressionantes fotos desta tradição:

BROCKWORTH, ENGLAND - MAY 25:  Contestants in the men's race chase a Double Gloucester Cheese down the steep gradient of Cooper's Hill during the annual Bank Holiday tradition of cheese-rolling on May 25, 2009 in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, England. Thousands of spectators gathered to watch contestants from around the world tumbling down the 200m slope - which has a 1:1 gradient in parts - in a series of races, said to date back hundreds of years, with the winner of each receiving a cheese. Injuries such as broken arms and legs are commonplace (last year 30 people were treated), even forcing the cancellation of the event in the past.  (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
