Bone crushers
Haer shaalgan, or breaking spine bones, is an old Buryatian pastime that was recognized as a national sport in 2020. Players try to break a cow or camel bone with the sharp movement of their hands. Before hitting, Zhalsyp always puts a bone to his forehead and asks for the animal’s soul to return to life. Zhalsyp Manzarov is one of the most prominent Buryatian bone crushers.
