Australia hosted the ‘St Ives Medieval Faire’ in Sydney where ‘Knights’ in armour battle each other wearing 40 kilogrammes of armour and carrying a lance while riding a horse. The participant at this medieval jousting tournament has to break his opponent’s lance or shoulder shield, or unseat him in order to score points. Many of the competitors have had years of training. The annual competition is in its third year and attracts enthusiasts from all over the world.
