A Virginia couple took home the grand prize--$630 and 12 cases of beer--after competing in the North American Wife Carrying Championship in Maine Saturday.
According to a report, Jake and Kirsten Barney finished second in the race last year, trudging through water and jumping over logs, all the while Jake carrying Kirsten on his back.
The competition, which is based on the Finnish legend of "Ronhainen the Robber," features 60 couples who take home the wife's weight in beer, and five times her weight in cash.
