Tension mounts before the start of Argentina's very first waiters' race.
The women get service underway.
Contestants carried a glass of wine, a bottle of water and a bottle of soda over a 2-mile or 3-kilometer course … and not a drop could be spilled.
The men's race ended in dramatic fashion and winner in a photo finsih was Juan Anibel from San Juan province.
SOUNDBITE: Juan Anibel, from the province of San Juan, winner of the overall race as well as the 46 and older category, saying (Spanish):
"It was exhausting but thanks to God I won the trophy for my province."
And the fastest waitress was Liliana Powell.
SOUNDBITE: Liliana Powell, winning waitress, saying (Spanish):
"I got a little tired, but I overcame. I didn't come to win. I came to be with my friends, but I am leaving very happy."
And it looks like theses waiters are keen to return next year to dish up some speedy service.
