The Alpine Finger Wrestling Championships

The Alpine Finger Wrestling Championships
Think alpine sports and you'll probably think of skiing and snowboarding, but there's another alpine sport that doesn't get the same coverage - Alpine Finger Wrestling. The 35th edition of the annual Alpine Finger Wrestling Championships took place in the Bavarian region of Schnaitsee, Germany recently - with a handful of winners across the weight divisions thrilling the highly enthusiastic crowd.
The sport began when the art of finger wrestling was used as a method of settling disputes in the Alps back in the 17th century. But today, in 2012, finger wrestling is a sport in its own right. Well, in Bavaria at least.
