The 55 ethnic groups make up only a small portion of the overall Chinese population, but they make great contributions to enrich traditional Chinese culture. Mongolian wrestling, whistling archery, fireworks-snatching, horse wrestling, dragon dance, swinging, bar running race, stilt running race, are some of the ethnic sports that express their vigor and enthusiasm in special ways. The events, rooted deeply in their local folk customs and reflecting their own culture and history, help make up Chinese culture. [Top 10 ethnic groups sporting events]
