• The most severe and life-threatening events Tough Guy 2016
On Sunday held an annual competition Tough Guy 2016. These races can not describe except about the English city of Wolverhampton "a real nightmare, it's worse than running away from a whole herd of stallions hell."
Despite the obvious risks and dangers, with the participation in the race, thousands of people each year, men and women, eager to test yourself and prove that they are the most hardy and strong. And these qualities will certainly be useful to all the participants, because they have to go through the mud, fire, electricity, barbed wire and more.
This year's winner was the 22-year-old Connor Hancock from Sheffield, who finished with a time of 1 hour, 31 minutes.
Every year thousands of people take part in the competition, but about half do not even reach the finish line.
This year, the competition began with a cross-country, then followed by the obstacles or the so-called "killing fields" under the name "Vietcong tunnel torture", "Ditch Tank" and "terrible anaconda" (whatever that meant ).
On the Tough Guy Challenge is no place for discrimination.

This year, 4,500 people took part in the race, but only half of them could reach the finish line. Many were disqualified due to the fact that the obstacle is not according to the rules.
Many participants decided to dress up in crazy costumes and paint the face. Perhaps to intimidate rivals, and perhaps for aesthetic pleasure.
The competition was organized in 1987 by Billy Wilson, a former military man, who at one time was engaged in physical training of soldiers of the British Army.
Bill Wilson himself, or, as it is called, Mr. Mouse, said the most difficult race in the world crosscourt.
In the 25 years of the competition two people were killed and hundreds were injured varying degrees of severity.
