Kysart, Kyrgyzstan
Aerial view of the Kok Boru playing field. A rider has managed to break away the pack and score a point by throwing the goat carcass into the goal. Trying to outrun your opponents with a decapitated goat wedged between your leg and your horse, might not be your idea of a fun game, but in Kyrgyzstan, Kok Boru is the national sport. Two teams of riders race from one end of the field to the other chasing the rider with the goat.

لقطةٌ جويّة لساحة لعب الكوك بورو. استطاع اللاعب أن يبتعد عن الفريق فرمى جمجمة الماعز في الهدف. بالنسبة إليك، قد لا يكون التنافس على التقاط رأس ماعز مقطوع وأنت على صهوة الحصان أمراً ممتعاً بالنسبة لك، إلا أن لعبة الكوك بورو تعدُّ الرياضة الوطنيّة في قيرغيزستان. ويتسابق فريقان من الفرسان من جهةٍ إلى أخرى من الملعب فيما يطاردون الفارس الذي يحمل رأس الماعز.
