Now, imagine having a sport that’s all about Ironing, EXTREME IRONING.
Extreme Ironing (also called El) is an extreme sport whereby people take ironing boards to remote locations and iron items of clothing.
According to the Extreme Ironing Bureau, extreme ironing is “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt.”
Part of the attraction and interest the media and people have shown towards this sport seems to be the centre on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not. It is widely considered to be “tongue-in-cheek”
Some locations where the sport has taken place include a mountainside for a challenging climb; a forest, in a canoe; while skiing or snowboarding; on top of a large bronze statue; in the middle of a street, underwater, in the middle of the M1 motorway, in a cycle race, while parachuting, and under the ice sheet of a frozen lake.
The performances have been done solo or by groups.
I don’t know about you, but this definitely would be a suitable sport for those who just LOVE IRONING!
