PHOTO: Tumbling down a hill for cheese

Double Gloucester Cheese
Contestants in the men's race chase a Double Gloucester Cheese down the steep gradient of Cooper's Hill during the annual Bank Holiday tradition of cheese-rolling on Monday in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, England. Thousands of spectators gathered to watch contestants from around the world tumble down the 200 metre slope, in a series of races that are said to date back hundreds of years, with the winner of each receiving a cheese. Injuries such as broken arms and legs are commonplace. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
