Cheese Rolling

 

Every May the village of Brockworth in Gloucestershire, England has a “cheese roll” at the very steep Cooper’s Hill. A giant wheel of the local Double Gloucester cheese is rolled down the hill, and people have to chase after it. The first to the bottom of the hill is the winner. This might sound like a nice, fun event, but very often people are injured, and an ambulance has to be there in order to deal with any casualties.

The champion cheese-roller is local man Chris Anderson, who is usually a soldier, and who does the cheese roll to raise money for a charity. Have a look as he wins the competition again.
