Hundreds of tourists from across China have flocked to see the annual Yak Yogurt drinking competition held in the Jiuzhai Valley, in Sichuan province. At stake was the prize of a 24 Karat gold coin. Sounds easy? Just one problem. The participants had to use their hands to drink the yogurt instead of a bowl. A young man from Leshan city in Sichuan province was the eventual winner after managing to drink two bowls of yak yogurt in just five minutes. [Photo: Chinanews.com/Chen Chao]
