Descendants of legendary Genghis Khan, the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan is hosting the World Nomad Games, a competition where polo players ditch their mallets and try to catch a dead goat instead.

This interesting event has brought  together athletes from 40 countries including Russia and the United States where nomadic traditions are strong. The World Nomad Games features such unorthodox sports disciplines as eagle-hunting and bone-throwing.

Kyrgyzstan is very proud of its nomadic traditions and sports where men can challenge in horse riding, wrestling with using some kind of traditional weapons etc. Recently Western countries are getting more excited about this latter.

The World Nomad Games are an opportunity for Central Asia to not just showcase its heritage and culture, but truly share it.
