Mongolia's game day

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 11 July 2019

Mongolia. It's not a country many of us probably think about that often but for those who do, today is a special day. 

It's the beginning of Naadam [nard-dim], the country's annual National Festival of Games. Mongolians living all over the world travel home for the event, which includes wrestling, archery, and horse riding. 

Matthew Hooton is the Consul for Mongolia and tells us more about it.
