A New Zealand duo has smashed the record for the longest throw and catch of an egg.
Nick Hornstein and Robbie Hollander's 81-metre effort was the highlight of the annual World Egg-Throwing Championships, held in the English village of Swaton.
In May the duo set up a Givealittle page to fundraise for their world record attempt, raising $4721.69.
"The future of Egg Throw and Catch is limitless. We see ourselves cracking on and travelling the world to prestigious Egg Throw and Catch championships in each country and competing with the very best," they said.
Sunday's event also saw a victory for Canada, with Julie Moen winning the Egg Russian Roulette challenge.
The messy challenge sees two players, sitting opposite each other, taking it in turns to pick from six eggs, five boiled and one raw, and smashing them on their heads. Whoever avoids the raw egg is declared winner.
