Photographer's Note

Schwingen is a folk wrestling style native to Switzerland. Wrestlers wear Schwinghosen (German wrestling breeches) with belts that are used for taking holds. Throws and trips are common because the first competitor to pin his/her opponent's shoulders to the ground wins the bout. Schwingen tournaments were organized as early as 1805. It, along with Hornussen and Steinstossen, are considered the national sports of Switzerland.
