The World Leech Racing Championships were started by Sue Dethridge twenty years ago in Dorrigo
s stand in the center of a trampoline
and are encouraged to wriggle to the edge. According to Sue, one leech owner had claimed that he drank coffee
all night then let his leech suck his caffeinated blood
- but the leech
still came in last. Damn, I miss Australia. You just don't get that kind of thing here, you know?
