Fun Teamwork: National Wife Carrying Championship

The North American National Wife Carrying Championship was held recently in Newry, Maine.  See the video below.

Husbands carry their wives through an obstacle course with the best time winning.

During the pre-race interviews with contestants, you'll see "Joe Decker the World Record Holder for Fitness".  Conventional thinking would say that he will win.  Clearly Joe is strong, fast and competitive.  Only he doesn't win.  Joe Castro and his wife win.

When it comes to winning as a team, it's not so much about having outstanding individuals on the team.  It's more about how those individuals work together.
