A 9 year old girl, Charlie Sleight, has been crowned the world champion of puddle-jumping!

Charlie competed against 400 people in the bizarre annual event in England. Winning the competition the day before her 10th birthday, Charlie says it was the best birthday present ever.

The competitors are judged on their enthusiasm along with the height of their jump, the distance of the splash and ‘stickability’ (the amount of mud that the competitor is covered in after their jump.)

The event is designed to encourage both children and adults to get out and have fun in the fresh air, held at Wicksteed  Park which was founded by Charles Wicksteed to inspire play as part of family health and well-being.

Competitors of all ages are encouraged to jump in and make their biggest splash!
