Strange Sports: The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake

 CheeseRollingA Cheesy Sport

By Avalon

The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England. It is actually for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now, people from all over the world take part of this event.

This ceremony originally took place in Whit Monday before later transferred to the Spring Bank Holiday. After a lot of proposals to the idea for the The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake, the idea finally came out. These contestants would roll a bundle of cheese down a long hill and see who’s the fastest. Sometimes people get injured so this isn’t a very safe sport for us kids.

    Bicycle motocross, also known as BMX, is an extreme sport. Usually, people think that bicycle is a sport that is relaxing and recreation, if they think that way, they are wrong!

    BMX is a sport where you do stunts like flips and turns. Some people could even get hurt in the progress of performing. Also, they could do incredible figures. It’s like you never would know what will come up next during the show.

     People who play BMX also need to wear protective gear. Most people would fail at the first few times, but if you never give up, you will also become a master at it and be on TV! They could also get hurt, however, if they continue practicing, they would actually start to enjoy it, progressing very quickly and enjoy it.
