A fair cow of a prize

leave a comment »

A US skier won a cow in addition to a cash prize for a major downhill event in France.

Lindsey Kildow, who won her second downhill of the season in the French resort, was handed 23,000 euros and a cow for her victory. “Someone wanted to buy (the cow) from me for 1,000 euros,” she said. “But I’m keeping her anyway.”
Kildow said she had no exact idea of what she do with the gift.

Why a cow for downhill skiiing?
A cow would obviously be a good prize for a milking competition.

Would people like to suggest other appropriate prizes for various competitive events?

Like a big pen for a writing competition.
