Second World Nomad Games is a great contest in horse racing games and other nomadic sports!

13245321_10201645955388378_4400885089480778163_nThe main differences of this great event from the traditional sports activities are:

• Originality – every kind of sport vividly reflects the values, culture and life of its ethnic group and accordingly has its own history and tradition, which is no longer in the Olympic sports.

• Entertainment – many sports are characterized by their primitive cruelty and naturalness. This all gives a powerful adrenaline rush both for players and spectators.

The first World Nomad Games were held in Kyrgyzstan in September 9-14, 2014, in the city of Cholpon-Ata on the shores of the famous lake Issyk-Kul. The founders of the Games are four countries: Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkey. World-Nomad-GamesAthletes from 19 countries took part in the games: Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Mongolia, Russia, USA, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, France, Sweden, South Korea. Among the participants were 583 sportsmen and 188 coaches and referees, as well as 230 horses. TV Broadcast was available for 230 million people from 40 countries of the world.

Second World Nomad Games will also be held in Kyrgyzstan in the city of Cholpon-Ata on September 3-8 2016. The program of the Games, as well as the first ones, will include the following sports: Alysh, Salbuurun, Ordo, At chabysh, Er anish, Toguz korgool, Kyrgyz Kurosh, Kok-Boru, Kazak Kurosh, Alman baige, Kunan chabysh. There will be total EP-140919869 (1)25 kinds of sports, including national games, horse racing games and equestrian events, the festival of martial arts, competitions in archery, competitions in national kinds of hunting, the traditional intellectual games. The main activities are planned in the area of Cholpon-Ata on the racetrack and Semenov gorge, where will be installed a yurt camp of 250 yurts. Racetrack in Cholpon-Ata will be repaired to meet international standards, there will be increased the number of seats up to 10 thousand people.  In addition, there will be organized music, dance, folklore performances, exhibitions of crafts, fairs and much more. Thousand of  komuz players will perform the tune “Kerbezim” at the opening ceremony of the World Nomad Games. For this event will be invited musicians from all over the country and it has all the chances to get into the Guinness Book of Records. 

Among the organizers and partners of the games are the Secretariat ofDSC05802 the World Nomad Games with the support of the World Ethno-sport Confederation, the Association of Kyrgyzstan Resorts. Great interest in the organization and conduct of the games have shown the university students and youth activists. The total number of candidates for volunteers has reached 2 500 people.

Preparation for the Games is now in full swing. For example, recently in Beijing, there was a presentation of the Second World Nomad Games, organized by the Embassy of Kyrgyzstan in China. The presentation was attended by representatives of ministries and departments of China, China’s tourism companies and journalists from “Xinhua” information agency, “CCTV-Russian, “China” magazine and “Silk Road-review.”
