Extreme ironers head for the US
Enthusiasts of the sport of extreme ironing are heading to the US as part of their campaign for Olympic recognition.Members of the Extreme Ironing Bureau will be aiming to show off their expertise by ironing in locations such as Mount Rushmore and Times Square.
Team member Phil Shaw said: "After our victory at the Extreme Ironing World Championships in 2002, I knew there was no other place for us to go but America.
"We liken it to the last unconquered territory. If you haven't extreme ironed here, you haven't truly mastered the art. Who knows what's in store for the sport next; maybe one day Olympic recognition."
The two-week long adventure begins in Boston, on May 17, continues in the Black Hills of South Dakota at Mount Rushmore among other locations, with a grand finale in Times Square on Memorial Day, May 31.
Extreme ironing involves ironing items of laundry in remote, inhospitable, dangerous or unusual locations.Fans will have the opportunity to watch their progress on the extreme ironing website www.extremeironing.com.
