In one of the more interesting contests to ever grace the sports landscape, a Maine couple won the 2018 North American Wife Carrying Championship! 35 couples participated in the contest this past Saturday for the top prize of 12 cases of beer!
Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault won the annual event in a time of 58.72 seconds in the final round and were declared the winners! The couple also earned the chance to travel to Finland to compete in the World Wife Carrying Championship.
Wall and Arsenault have participated in this event before, and have won it in previous years. The event was held at the Sunday River Resort in Newry, Maine. Congratulations to the winning couple!
