Finns win Wife Carrying Championship

NEWRY — Not everybody trained all year for the North American Wife Carrying Championships the way Dave Castro and his wife Lacey did, but most of the 50 couples that participated Saturday at the annual event at Sunday River still had a good time.

The event in its 13th year drew a crowd of spectators of between 1,500 and 2,000 people.

But in the end, defending World Champions Taisto Miettinen and Kristina Haapanen, who traveled from Helsinki, Finland — home of the World Wife Carrying Championships came out on top with a time of 52.58 seconds.

The prize, besides a check for $530 and some trophies crafted to look like the timber hurdles, is the winning woman's weight in beer.

Miettinen and Haapanen displayed some Finnish sportsmanship by sharing their prize with the Castros and the second place couple, Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault of South Paris, Maine, who got into the final race with a time of 53.22 seconds.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

It's much easier and safer to buy or brew.
