Unbelievable run I thought.» Thousands of spectators watched competitors hurtle downhill after a rolling wheel of cheese in Brockworth, Gloucestershire on Monday. From the top, a 9 pound (4.1 kilogram) round of Double Gloucester was sent rolling down the hill followed by chasing competitors. Those who crossed the finish line first at the bottom won a wheel of cheese. This year's winner in the female category — Flo Early — managed to dislocate her shoulder falling head-over-HILLS for that cheese! While another entrant — Nathan Anstey — sporting only a pair of 'budgie smugglers' had travelled all the way from Australia to take part. «It's the most exhilarating thing I've ever done so I had to come back,» he said in an interview afterwards. The annual Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake attracts thousands of spectators every Spring Bank Holiday. The event has been run on an unofficial basis since 2010, when health and safety fears caused it to be cancelled.
