The Toe Wrestling World Championships have come to a close in England. The female champion is once again Lisa ‘twinkle toes’ Shenton and the men’s champion, Alan ‘Nasty’ Nash, made his reign seven years now with this years victory. Toe wrestling is basically, two ‘fighters’ sit across from each and rest their feet on a ‘toedium.’ They interlocked toes and battle it out to force one of their opponent’s feet to touch the toedium’s frame.
