Ironing is often considered to be one of the most boring household tasks that exists. Not any more! Ironing has been taken to a whole new level with the invention of an extreme sport known as Extreme Ironing.
Extreme ironing is a sport/performance art involving ironing articles of clothing in weird and wonderful locations. Thrill seekers who practice extreme ironing have ironed while parachuting, during mountain climbing, on top of perilous cliffs and even under the ocean. It is claimed that the sport first began in England during the late 1990's.
Since then many different versions of the sport have developed as people try to outdo each other. Scroll down to take a look at some of these extreme ironers in action!
