Sledders re-buffed

The Oxford Times: Francis Thomas took third place in the public vote Francis Thomas took third place in the public vote

An Oxford University contestant narrowly missed out on the chance to represent Britain in the Naked Sledding Championship 2014.

Language student Francis Thomas took third place in the public vote, behind the two Brits heading to Germany to sled down a mountain wearing nothing but pants, boots and a helmet.

Mr Thomas, 19, got 15 per cent of the 14,798 votes cast – around 2,000 votes.

The winners, from Sunderland and Eastbourne, won with 18 and 17 per cent of the votes respectively.

Another Oxfordshire candidate, Dave Algar from Carterton, came fifth.
