Naked Sled Race 2012 – The Aftermath

Well, true to expectations the Naked Sled Race 2012 smashed all records. An estimated 25,000 people came to watch the event live, which means that in the 4 years since it began the attendance has more than doubled and that success looks set to continue with over 5000 people registering to take part in this year’s race.

New world champions

So, the winner of the Men’s World Championship title was Bernd Malyska, a 37 year old from Lower Saxony, and the winner of the Women’s title is Mia Magma who lives in Bavaria and plies her trade as a German pornstar. Both trousered a cool €1000 prize money and Mia has decided to give her cash to PETA, which isn’t anything to do with pornstars but pets, which is great. Oh, and Marcus Schenkenberg, him of Meatballs and Macaroni fame, secured not only his privates but also a creditable third place.

2012 highlights

In total 17 men and 13 women, stripped off and raced, which included two lingerie models from Norway – is it just me or do you also feel that it’s not a complete coincidence that out of 5000 applications and just 30 places, two of those went to underwear models? Well, damn it, however their selection policy works it’s doing the trick and we for one are big fans and not necessarily just for the nudity, more for the fact that it’s a celebration of the daftness, fun and frivolity that makes life just that bit more interesting.
