Englands greatest gravy wrestlers gathered in Lancashire, England, to grapple in a pool full of 1,500 liters of gravy for the annual World Gravy Wrestling Championships, which drew a crowd of more than a thousand spectators. Each bout lasts two minutes, and the winner is determined on the basis of wrestling skill and entertainment value. According to the Manchester Evening News, Rachel Williams was the champion of the women's tournament, while Paddy Sharky from Whitworth was the men's winner.
