Take a look at these promo clips for the World Nomad Games, which will take place in September.

Now in its second edition, the World Nomad Games is an international sports competition dedicated to ethnic sports practised in Central Asia.

Events include falconry, horse racing, wrestling and Buzkashi, a Central Asian sport in which horse-mounted players attempt to place a goat or calf carcass in a goal. The games are accompanied by a cultural programme, which this year will feature music and fashion events.

The second World Nomad Games will be held from 3 – 8 September on the shore of Lake Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan. More information can be found here.
