Cheese rolling is one of the craziest and funniest competitions in the world. Contestants will chase after a round piece of cheese dropping from the top of a hill which 200 meters high, with a slope of 50%. At the end of the race, whoever catches the cheese will be the winner.
This competition is usually held on Cooper Hill in Gloucestershire, England on the occasion of the Spring Bank Holiday (the last Monday of May). One noteworthy information is that the velocity of the cheese can reach 112km per hour. Players will have to run as fast as possible to catch the cheese. Therefore a lot of accidents have happened during these races. In 2014, the organizers replaced the cheese with a sponge to make the “rolling downhill” safer. The prize for the winner is a piece of cheese weighing 3-4 kg.
