World wife-carrying title goes to Finnish couple

After finishing fourth last year, Ville Parviainen and Janette Oksman have reached the top. They won the world championship in wife-carrying in Finland over the weekend.

Thirty-six couples from a dozen countries took part.

The prize? Oksman’s weight in beer.

Meanwhile, in Monona, Wisconsin, Jon Fenrick carried his wife, Angie, 850 feet through an obstacle course to win the Monona wife carrying championship, five cases of beer and $525.
