World Gravy Wrestling Championship makes a splash


STORY: At the Rose ‘n’ Bowl pub in Lancashire, England, there was plenty of gravy on tap for the 10th annual World Gravy Wrestling Championship.

An incredible 20,000 gallons of traditional Lancashire gravy, made from a mixture of meat juices, chopped up vegetables and corn flour, was supplied for the event.

Held in aid of a local hospice, hundreds of people turned out to watch the wrestlers who participated from all over the country.

The knockout tournament reached its conclusion with Rachel Pidutti Williams winning the ladies’ title. It was the first time the 32 year-old school teacher from Aberdeen had entered the competition.

The winner said she dressed for success. “A skin tight suit so that they can’t be grabbed and dragged down is pretty helpful, and the ability to laugh at themselves,” said Pidutti Williams.

In the men’s final, 18-year student old Paddy Sharkey beat his cousin Dave in the final.

“Dedication. That’s what you need. A lot of dedication,” said Sharkey.

Both champions plan to return next year to defend their titles.
