Did we know that the North American wife carrying championships has been put on for 13 years? No. Did we know that the sport existed until seeing this video? Absolutely not.
However, we do know this: If the Finns think they can just come over here and take our wife carrying championship away from us, well my friend, they've got another thing coming. A big thing coming.
This is America. We do not just lay down when faced with athletic failure. We will pour money and resources into training our best athletes for next year's games. We will overhaul our development program for junior wife carriers. And we will scout for large men-small women couples from sea to shining sea to ensure that we have our best runners out there come next October 7. We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!
