There is seemingly no activity which humans will not enjoy more by making it into a competition. 

To the winner goes the glory and the pride of knowing you are the best. 

Though it might be hard for others to understand how you became the best in the following unusual competitions.

1. World Beard and Moustache Championship

With over 15 different categories ranging from all natural to the crazy freestyle, this competition has been held in various locations in the US and Europe since 1990.

2. Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake

Competitors chase after a 9 pound wheel of cheese down a steep hill and the first person over the finish line at the bottom wins the cheese.

So many people are injured that, in 2005, the races had to be held up a while in order for the ambulances to return from the hospital.

3. Air Guitar Championships

There are competitions held all over the world, but The Annual Air Guitar World Championship Contest is the biggest. It has been held annually since 1996 in Finland.

4. Worm Charming Championships

Worm charmers get a small plot of soil and try to get the most worms in a set amount of time.

The World Worm Charming Championships have been going on in England since 1980. The record for most worms is 567 held by a 10-year-old girl.

5. Wife-Carrying Races

Wife-carrying races are popular in many countries, and the world championships are held in Finland every year.
