There wasn't a prize for the team who travelled furthest to compete in the Great Grocers' Trolley Race at Woburn last Sunday. But had there been, the quartet from vodka distributor S&V would have walked it. All four were visiting from the distillery in the Crimea, in the Ukraine, where the vodka is produced, and only found out on the Friday before the race that they had been entered. Their preparation for the race included drinking vodka until 2am on the night before, and copious cigarettes between heats. Despite that they made it through to the semi finals where they were only beaten by the eventual winners of the entire tournament. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
