By h.b.

Organisers say that 25,000 people attended the annual Olive Stone launching competition on the Paseo in Cieza, Murcia on Saturday. 285 people competed in this, the fourteenth edition of the spitting competition.

The so-called Hueso de Oro, went to a local PP councillor, Teodoro García Egea, whose 18.76 metres is the fourth longest recorded distance ever. The longest ever distance was set locally in 1998 by Mariano Martínez Béjar who reached 21.32 metres.

The winner was named World Champion, given that the event has also been held in New York, Munich and Beijing, among other cities.
