A Test of Body Strength

The Maonan live in the mountainous areas in northern Guangxi. When they tread on perilous mountain paths, they have to hold things in both arms which gives them a strong waist, arms and feet. So they often hold a competition called Log-Pushing. The game takes two opposing teams, each with three or four participants. One member stands on other partners'  locked hands, with his hands and shoulder holding one end of a wooden pole. With concerted efforts among team members, the two teams push against each other, and the one who pushes until the thread tied at the center of the pole reaches a line on the opponent's side is the winner.
