Photos: Full-contact Ultimate Jousting Championship at South Point
It’s a 400-year-old sport, and the Ultimate Jousting Championship has just been reborn at South Point’s arena. Photographer Tom Donoghue, who shot this photo gallery, said: “This is full-contact, heavy armored jousting -- just like the old days of long-ago history. You’re going to get hurt -- the only question is when and how bad!”
The reigning world champion of the sport is Charlie Andrews, and he won the debut event of the first UJC season, which will take place at arenas across the country this summer and eventually return to South Point.
