Football fan climbs mountain in thong after losing World Cup bet | inside World Soccer

A football fan has climbed to the summit of Mount Snowdon wearing nothing more than a Welsh dragon thong after losing a bet on Brazil to win the World Cup.



Jon Jolley, from Wrexham, promised to walk up Mount Snowdon if the host nation failed to clinch victory at this year's World Cup.

So sure was he of their success, he even promised to scale the mountain wearing just a thong if they lost.

Snowdon, which is the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands, stands at 3,560ft above sea level.

But when the Seleção crashed out of the competition after a 7-1 thrashing in the semi-final against Germany, his nightmare of donning skimpy underwear became a harsh reality.

Despite his disappointment, though, Jon kept his promise and scaled Snowdon in a pair of skimpy Welsh dragon underpants in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Here's what Jon had to say for himself on his Cancer Research Fundraising page:

Several weeks ago I stupidly made the statement "if Brazil don't win the World Cup I will climb snowdon in a thong".

As you probably know by now Brazil were knocked out in the semi finals and now have no chance to win said World Cup.

After sobbing uncontrollably for several hours, I realised that I could turn this situation around. By doing the climb for charity I can turn this negative into a positive and become the first man to climb the mountain in a thong (I think).

By donating to my just giving page you will be safe in the knowledge that you are helping a great charity and will know that you are encouraging me to climb a mountain nearly naked, my already unimpressive manhood forced to fend for itself in that inhospitable environment.

Regardless of the funds raised I will climb Snowdon wearing a thong, and definitely summit the mountain wearing only a thong. If I manage to raise my target of £150 pounds I will attempt to climb the entire mountain wearing only the thong (weather and laws permitting).

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.


Initially Jon set himself a target of £150, but has trounced that and has so far raised £1,040, with a total of 116 donations.
