Silk Road SPORTS
From Archery to Volleyball and everything inbetween, Silk Road Folk love sports!
There are sports unique to East, Central and West Asia, and the Caucasus, most notably Goresh, also spelled Koresh, a wrestling style. It's rather similar also to Chinese Shuai Jiao. I published an article about my visit to a Goresh training center in Ashgabat Spring 2016: http://www.kungfumagazine.com/ezine/article.php?article=1292
Asian Games 2017
I'm quite certain everyone along the Silk Road is looking forward to the Asian Games 2017 to be held in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan in September.
If you're planning on visiting one of the Silk Road countries for sports, you might want to hook up with one of their sports federations which can be contacted through their National Olympic Sports Committee.
