Crying babes compete in special Sumo contest

Posted: Updated:
HIROSHIMA, JAPAN - Usually it's safe to say babies are not at their cutest when they're crying, but that's just not true when it comes to the Annual Crying Sumo contest in Hiroshima, Japan.

About 800 babies took part in the event this year which is part of Children's Day.

The babies sit face-to-face, dressed in traditional sumo costumes, and the first baby to cry wins!

Many believe the loud cry of a baby wards off evil spirits and brings healthy growth.
