1. Ironing championship sections

  • Forest - Ironing at the top of a tree did not suit all the competitors.
  • Water - A fast flowing river was the location for this station. Competitors could use surfboards, canoes or rubber rings to help them.
  • Urban - Involved ironing in/on/around a broken down car.
  • Freestyle - The section where "anything goes".
  • Lauda - A purpose built climbing wall, which ironists had to climb and iron a T-shirt.

2. Results

The GB1 and GB3 teams managed to win the gold and bronze team medals. German and Austrian competitors picked up the individual prizes.

Competitors were tested on their abilities to cope with five arduous ironing tests on a variety of fabrics and in different environments ranging from rocky to forest, urban and water. A 70-strong contingent gathered in a muddy field to combine the often mundane household task with "extreme" pursuits such as rock climbing. They were judged on their creative ironing skills as well as the creases in the clothing. The British team prepared for the championships in different locations such as Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in the hope of winning prizes including a holiday in Hawaii, washing machines and other household goods.
