Chris Anderson has endured bruised kidneys, a severe concussion and a broken ankle in years past to win the annual Double Gloucester cheese-rolling race.

This year, it took a torn calf muscle for him to notch a 22nd career victory.

The 30-year-old star cheese chaser overtook Stephen Gyde in the all-time cheese race record books with the first of two wins this week, as BBC reported, and the calf injury was hardly a deterrent of celebration.

"I’m happy (and) I’ve got nothing to prove now," he said, per BBC.
