Mongolians count wrestling as one of their traditional "three manly sports", with the other two being horse-racing and archery.

The sports form one of the biggest draws at the annual Naadam festival, a major summer ethnic celebration for young and old to revel in fun and games on the lush, green grasslands across the region.

In Ar Horqin alone, residents and visitors from its more than 200 villages and beyond packed the outdoor festival in July as they enjoyed music performances featuring the traditional horse-head fiddle and other ethnic treats, while contestants such as Urtnasan readied to go for gold in their respective events.
