Tyre recycling manager Paul Beech from Tyre Recycle 2000 Ltd – a digitally formidable man also known as the ‘Toeminator’ – has secured his fourth successive world toe wrestling championship win. The 38-year old from Burton-on-Trent retained his crown after he fought off the ‘Itonian Stallion’ in the final thrilling round of the evening-long event, a spectacle witnessed by a crowd of about 200.
The Bentley Brook Inn was once again the arena chosen for the great occasion, and a national spotlight was thrown upon the event with the presence of TV comics Rory McGrath and Paddy McGuinness and a Channel 5 documentary crew. McGrath and McGuinness had hoped to sample the sport for themselves, but their dreams of wrestling stardom were shattered after Rory failed the toe inspection.
Toe wresting dates back to the 1970s – it was invented by a group of walkers in Staffordshire, reportedly because they wanted to create a sport in which Britain could be successful.
