Watch: Ready, steady, eau! Waiters race returns to Paris

No Content

Trays of coffee and croissants were held aloft around Paris today in a revival of one of the city’s traditional spectacles – a race involving waiters and waitresses from its famous cafes.

Judges at the end check the amount of liquid that has spilled during the contest, which allows only brisk walking.

The event began in 1914, but has not been held since 2011 due to lack of sponsors. It has been brought back in the run-up to the Paris 2024 summer Olympics.
