    Meet Wife-Carrying Champs

    NEWRY, Maine - Warren Straatman has worked up a thirst -- carrying his wife Wendy. But he now has plenty of beer to wet his palate.

    Warren and Wendy Straatman of Owasso, Oklahoma, have won the national wife-carrying contest. First prize is the wife's weight in beer and five times her weight in cash.

    The Straatmans navigated an obstacle course in a minute and 15 seconds. Warren had to carry Wendy over three-foot-high log hurdles and a 22-foot-long lagoon.

    Wife-carrying is nothing new to the Straatmans. They're two-time Oklahoma champs, and tried for a national wife-carrying title twice before.
