Kyrgyzstan – The World Nomad Games

Probably the most exciting thing we’ve had come up this year is an invitation to The World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan; the games are massive – nearly three-thousand competitors and is broadcast in that part of the world to nearly five hundred million people. Basically, it’s the nomad version of our olympics.

Their games include wrestling, foot archery (numerous types from all over the world), mounted archery and buzukashi (you need to look this up – seriously).

Here’s the best part. We’re the first US team EVER to be offered a spot to compete. Their sports are relatively uncommon here – so the US has never been taken that seriously, some crazy Texans aim to change that.

The site will be updated during our trip, so keep any eye here, Facebook and Instagram for photos and updates.
