More than 260 teams competed in China’s first wife carrying world championship on Saturday in Yulin city.
During the race, the male competitor has to dodge obstacles, leap over timber and wade through water all while carrying a female teammate on his back.
The rules say the female teammate has to have a minimum weight of 108 pounds.
The wife carrying competition originated in Finland in 1992.
Traditionally each team was composed of a husband and wife couple, however this is no longer a standard practice as friends and lovers can also participate in the game.
China hopes that holding the contest will help advance sports and cultural exchanges.
