In Spain, hundreds vie for the top spot at Tarragona Human Tower Competition

Building castells or human towers is a Catalan tradition that dates back over two hundred years, with every castell reaching up to 10 levels being built by a team of 75 to 500. An annual castells competition is held every two years in Tarragona, a city in the Catalonia region of Spain, and the next one will be in 2014. And we thought cheerleading was complicated.
