A close-up view of Lion Guardians jumping

Two Lion Guardians celebrating the Games by jumping. In the Maasai culture, it is traditional for men to engage in this competitive jumping activity, which is used to show the murrans, or warriors', stamina and strength...and to impress the girls! These Lion Guardians are showing how high they can jump and having a great time in the process.
