Crazy Brits- Shin Kicking Contest

I included the description below the video.
British Shin Kicking Championship video from http://www.soglos.com./ The British Shin Kicking Championships
take place every year in Gloucestershire as part of the Cotswold Olimpick Games.
Competitors stuff their trousers with straw to protect their shins - which
receive a hard battering from opponents whose aim is to unstable their rival
before throwing them to the ground. Thousands turn up to watch the competitive
and brutal sport - while many a brave shin kicker can be seen limping away,
covered in mud. The 2008 winner, Steve 'The Bulldog', can be seen at the end of
the video being lifted by supporters, after a gruelling evening of knocking out
several components. Find out more about the Cotswold Olimpick Games on http://www.soglos.com./
