US man wins cherry-pit spitting contest in Michigan

Washington July 7 (ANI): A man from Lansing, US, Matt 'BB Gun' Krause won his first-ever International Cherry Pit Spitting Championship on Saturday.

With the win, he managed to get the crown back to his family that has dominated the annual competition in southwestern Michigan for four decades, Fox News reported.

Krause was crowned the most "spit-tacular" competitor at the championship event held at Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, just north of the Indiana border.

To grab the crown, the 30-year-old had to first beat his fellow family members and former champions, father, Rick 'Pellet Gun' Krause, and older brother, Brian 'Young Gun' Krause.

Matt claimed the crown by his 41 foot and six and a half inch launch.

The victory marked the 25th win for the Krauses in 40 tournaments conducted since 1974. (ANI)
