weird event: February 2012 Archives

275x250.jpg One of the toughest contests in the world -- the annual Tough Guy event in Staffordshire -- has been won by a 26-year-old German doctor.

Knut Hoehler started as just one of many racers setting off to complete the 12.9 kilometres cross country run before tackling an horrific looking assault course.

But after doing battle with the barbed wire, fire, tunnels and rope bridges Hoehler crossed the line first in a time of one hour, 11 minutes and 57 seconds.

And while he was covered in blood, he did better than some other competitors (who'd all signed a death disclaimer) who were treated for broken bones and hypothermia.
