The Naadam festival is the biggest and most joyful holiday celebration for Mongolians. The festival comprises the “Three Manly Sports”: wrestling; horse racing; archery. 1024 wrestlers compete on the green wrestling field-there is no weight division. Mongolian wrestlers wear traditional Mongolian boots and special clothes for wrestling, Zodog-small open-fronted vest and Shuudag-shorts. There are 6 different categories of horse racing depending on the age of horses.
The riders, both boys and girls are aged between 6-12 and the distance of the race ranges from 15-30km.
Archery, originating from the era of Genghis Khan is the oldest sport in Mongolia. Traditionally, this was only a men’s sport but nowadays both men and women compete in separate divisions. Male archers shoot on a 75m range while female archers shoot on a 60m range.
