Japan: the sumo lifting event with a prize for making babies cry

A "crying sumo" contest for babies was held at a shrine in Kanuma City, north of Tokyo, on Sunday.

Two people playing the role of sumo wrestlers raised the infants over their heads three times while shouting.

In the past the baby who cried first was the winner, but now both competitors get prizes.
