Hockey Players Just Got Knocked Off The ‘Toughest Athlete’ Throne
The English Shin-Kicking championships have been stealing the hearts and captivating the dreams of Englanders for 401 years.
This video begs the question. Who’s tougher? Hockey players or shin-kickers? I think I have to go with shin-kickers, I mean straw for padding? That just isn’t enough to prevent pain, and to do this round after round? Anyone can withstand a punch to the face or a skate blade to the neck it takes true mettle to endure shin kicks. Respect.
P.S. This should be an olympic sport, the summer olympics needs something to compete with curling in the winter olympics. (can’t wait)
