一指定输赢,德国举办手指摔跤赛,“手指摔跤”英语怎么说?

大千世界,无奇不有,但你听说过“手指摔跤”吗?最近,德国举办了“手指摔跤”赛,参赛选手竭尽全力,真可谓一指定输赢。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

The origins of finger wrestling are shrouded in mystery. It has been said that it was once used to settle disputes in the Alpine region of southern Germany and neighboring Austria.
It may seem like a deeply unusual fringe sport, but competitors in the Alps Finger Wrestling championships take the sport incredibly seriously.
The athletes battled for the title in this traditional rural sport where the participants put their finger–most choose the middle–through a leather band and try to pull their opponent over a marked line on the table.

手指摔跤的起源笼罩着神秘的面纱。据说,它曾被用来解决德国南部的阿尔卑斯山地区以及邻国奥地利之间的纠纷。
这项运动也许看上去是一场极不寻常的冷门运动项目,但是,阿尔卑斯手指摔跤锦标赛的参赛选手们对此项运动的重视程度令人难以置信。
在这项传统的乡村比赛中,参赛选手们为头衔而战,他们把自己的手指(大多数是用中指)穿过皮革带,使足力气将对手拉过桌子上的标记线。
