Eukonkanto: The Wife-Carrying Competition In Finland

You may have come across several “strange” cultural practices; some would grip you with fear, while others would leave you astonished. The Eukonkanto or Wife-carrying competition in Finland falls into the latter category.

Strange as it might sound, Eukonkanto or better still, wife-carrying is a real sport in Finland. In fact, it is a highly competitive sport in which male competitors race while each carrying a female teammate (mostly, their wives). The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time.
