I’m sure like me you were all glued to your TV sets this weekend watching the sporting event of the year, right?
What do you mean you’ve never heard of the Mt Clutchmore Winter Classic?! It’s the most incredible show of athleticism in LEGO City! I was lucky enough to be there this year and I even paid for my own ticket this time (last time I got one for free!).
Sponsored by xtra it is the world’s toughest triathlon competition. Forget swimming, cycling and running. No, the MCWC is a whole other level.
Event one: Ice Hockey. Competitors took part in a 3-puck shoot-out versus one of the LHL’s finest goalies, Martin Brickeur.
Next, cross-country skiing. A 10km dash all over Mt Clutchmore. Thick with vegetation and rocks at times this is more of an obstacle course than a race track!
Finally the archery. After getting the heart rate going in the previous events, you might think that archery would be the most gentle of the disciplines. But no, it’s the toughest test of mind and skill. Whoever held their nerve would surely be crowned champion.
After a full day of gruelling physical and mental battle the scores had been totted up and there could only be one winner…
