Messy business at the World Gravy-Wrestling Championships

‘A karate club team have been crowned the world’s first gravy wrestling champions.

The eight teams competing for the title slopped about in a converted swimming pool filled with lukewarm gravy as part of the inaugural World Gravy-Wrestling Championships. [..]

Winning team leader Ian Marsden said: “It took great skill just to keep your feet. The gravy soon got cold and started to solidify.

“I think we got the better of the opposition because they were reduced to throwing lumpy gravy at us.”‘
