FELDKIRCHEN-WESTERHAM, GERMANY - AUGUST 11: A little girl, dressed in a traditional Bavarian 'Dirndl' dances to the brass music during the 60th annual Bavarian finger wrestling championships (also known as Fingerhakeln) on August 11, 2013 in Feldkirchen-Westerham, Germany. The sport involves two competitors matched in class according to age and weight who sit at a specifically-designed table across from one another and pull at a small leather band with one finger until one player has pulled the other across. The sport is traditional in Bavaria and as well Austria and dates back to the 17th century. (Photo by Johannes Simon/Getty Images)
