Here we are, dear friends to face another episode of StrangeSports, this time, we are going to analyze a weird sport invented in England, in Leichester, by a guy, who probably was really bored to death and was thinking of a good way to show the entire world, that maybe women can iron better, but men can do it with much more style! 

I'm presenting to you: the ruthless union between domestic life and different extreme sports: "Extreme ironing"

What the hell is "Extreme Ironing"?

The British citizen Phil Shaw, who invented this sport, said in an interview that this discipline is: "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt".

This discipline become famous all over the world thanks to a documentary called "Extreme Ironing: Pressing for Victory", broadcast in England on Channel 4.

During shooting, the conductors also had to face a small rivalry with the group "Urban housework", which, however, practiced extreme sports with the help of a vacuum cleaner.

I'm the happiest man in the world, i love this stuff

The rules:

  • You can practice all extreme sports,
  • Bring an ironing board manually with you
  • Bring an iron with you manually
  • When you arrive at your destination, install the ironing board, and iron your own clothes.
A wonderful collage of crazy guys

I do not know what else to add that is not already described in those pics... 

I find that this is definitely epic, maybe it will never find too much space in a TV station, but I am convinced that this is one of the most beautiful sports in the world, and for now is in second place in my personal ranking after "The Carrying wife Championship" and before the "snowball fight".

If you do not know what I'm talking about, go read the previous posts.

I greet you again, Hugs to everybody!
