    Goat game

    A horseman (R) is chased by opponents as he drags a headless goat across the pitch in Kyrgyzstan's Kok-boru Presidential Cup in the capital Bishkek March 18, 2008. Kok-boru, or goat grabbing, is a traditional Central Asian horse game that is considered Kyrgyzstan's national sport. Players grab a goat carcass from the ground in full gallop and try to place it into their opponent's goal, who attempt to foil the attack by snatching the headless goat away and score for their side. Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan each sent four teams to part in the cup.
