A MORISSET couple has finished 18th at the Wife Carrying World Championship in Finland.

Adam Cullen and his girlfriend Tylee Robinson were the only team from the Southern Hemisphere.

The competition involves heats where men carry women through an obstacle course. If couples fall and hit the ground, they receive a 10-second penalty.
