Beekeepers Wang Dalin, 42, and Lv Kongjiang, 20, battled it out over the weekend in Shaoyang, Hunan province, China in a competition known as ‘bee bearding’.

Wang and Lv competed by standing on a scale wearing only a pair of shorts and using queen bees they reared to attract other bees onto their bodies.

Wang won the competition after attracting 26 kg (57 lbs) of bees on his body in 60 minutes, while Lv had 22.9 kg (50 lbs), local media reported.
