Wife Carrying Race in Hungary

 

 -

 Around 30 Hungarian couples, with husbands carrying their wives on their backs, raced over rough terrain on May 7, 2022, in the nation's third wife-carrying contest.


----
Wife carrying (Finnish: eukonkanto or akankanto, Estonian: naisekandmine, Swedish: kärringkånk) is a contest in which male competitors race while each carrying a female teammate. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time. The sport was first introduced at Sonkajärvi, Finland.

Several types of carrying may be practised: either a classic piggyback, a fireman's carry (over the shoulder), or Estonian-style (wife upside-down on his back with her legs over the neck and shoulders).
