Canada vs. United States Tug Of War: Which Country Wins? (VIDEO)

Tug of war is one of the simplest games, relying solely on physical strength. It can also be harrowing to watch, especially if you're rooting for your country's victory.

Prior to the departure of 31 Canadian Brigade Group personnel from Camp Atterbury, Indiana, Canadian soldiers saw United States National Guard soldiers playing an interesting version of tug of war.

Our Canadian soldiers were there training with the reservists, and one guardsman put national pride on the line, challenging Canadian Master Corporal John Celestino of the Windsor Regiment to a contest with a U.S. National Guard soldier.

How did it unfold? Who won, the U.S. or Canada? Watch the nail-biting video, above, to find out.
