Sunderland firefighter wins vote to take part in naked sledding contest

The Northern Echo: Holly Garshong Holly Garshong

A NORTH-EAST firefighter will be swapping heat for cold after being named one of two winners in the race to represent the UK in the world naked sledding championships.

Holly Garshong, 29, from Barnes, Sunderland, emerged victorious from the last ten finalists and is set to hit the slopes in Germany on February 15.

Ms Garshong, whose parents were nudists, was playing at a ski resort with her band Four Star Hero when she got the news that she had made the final ten.

Holly received 18 per cent of the total votes, making her the most popular choice from the ten finalists.

The second representative is Thomas Chrusciel, a 21-year-old British Army Soldier from Eastbourne, Sussex.

Mike Chidzey, spokesperson for organisers Chillisauce.co.uk, said: “The public have spoken and we now have our two representatives - a firefighter and a soldier.

"What more could we ask for? The championship itself has come around very quickly and February 15 will be upon us in absolutely no time, but we have every faith that our team can bring home gold and look great doing it!”

Competitors are allowed to wear pants, boots and a helmet, to keep them safe as they scoot across the snow of the 89-metre course in Braunlage.

It is the first time the UK has entered a team to the competition, now in its fifth year.

lol, winter Olympics, nudist will be the winner anyway, lol

There's nothing unbeautiful about any body on the face of this planet. God made those bodies, therefore there’s nothing ugly underneath your clothing. If you're looking to ease your way into the nudist lifestyle, nudist resorts , nudist beaches and nudist dating site (Google localnudistsingle com) are available that offer a slightly less adventurous experience.
