Cheese Rolling is based on the athlete’s ability to catch a cheese that rolls from a slope. The sports competition of Cheese Rolling, or “rolling cheese”, is therefore based on running.
This bizarre “sport” is played at an event held once a year on Copper Hill near Brockworth and Cheltenham, England. The competitors have to engage in a race chasing a cheese wheel that rolls down the steep slope. The winner is whoever catches the cheese first. The speed of the cheese descent can be up to 70 miles an hour.
