Joy at the end of the run

WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2013, Sports Action, 1st prize singles WINNER

FEB 12, 2012 - West Sumatra, Indonesia.
A competitor and his charges reach the finish of a bull race, in Batu Sangkar, West Sumatra.
Pacu Jawi is a 400-year-old tradition in the area, held after the rice harvest once the paddies have been cleared.
Competitors yoke themselves barefoot to two bulls using a wooden harness, and drive the animals by gripping their tails.
Winners are judged by their ability to run in a straight line, and by whether both animals are cooperating.
Some 600 bulls and 50 farmers participated over a number of races in Pacu Jawi in February.
