I am sure we have all swivelled across the office on our chair when the boss isn’t looking, while some of us may have undertaken a challenge to see who can get across the floor first on our office chair on particularly quiet days.
So, it is no surprise that someone has taken this tomfoolery a step further and developed Office Chair Racing.
The championships took place in Germany this weekend in the town of Bad Konig-Zell and downhill event was won by Luxembourger Pierre Feller.
He covered the 200-metre course in just 26.95 seconds, reaching a top speed of 35kph on his humble, if slightly adapted, office chair.
It was the third championship of its kind and the rules permit riders to use inline-skate wheels and handles, but otherwise the chair must be just that, a chair.
