An 8-year-old girl from Kettering is the latest World Puddle Jumping Champion.
Melanie Mills took the title at Wicksteed Park in Northamptonshire earlier today.
The competition, now in its fourth year, asks children to make the most of the muddy autumn weather.
Judges scores are based on strict criteria including the height of jump, distance of splash and 'stickability' - the amount of mud which clings to each competitor.
Most marks are given for the size of the splash.
"I tried to jump the highest I could and get as muddy as possible but I can't believe I have won. I took part last year too and have been practicing since then."

A duck has been found in the middle of a housing estate in Suffolk.
The white drake caused a flap when he sat down in the road in the Teesdale housing estate in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft last week.
Animal loving residents managed to usher him in a greenhouse and alerted the RSPCA.
“It was very odd place to find a duck. He was just sitting in the road in the wet weather and a local cat was eyeing him up.
“He was tame so the locals rounded him up and popped him in a greenhouse until we collected him.
“It’s a bit of a mystery how he got there. He may be someone’s escaped pet or he may have been abandoned.”
Posters have been put up in the local area in a bid to find the duck's owners.
The animal will be put up for rehoming if no-one comes forward.
