The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race.
OMG. The world's largest hanging basket... Location: London, England. Weighing in at more than a quarter of a ton, Hotel Indigo claims this is the world's largest hanging flower basket.
