Facts About Inner Mongolia
Inner Mongolia: A region in China
Fact: Inner Mongolia has hosted the Chinese Ethnic Games. The games included traditional sports from all over China, including running races on stilts, horse archery, swing, bamboo beam boating, and pearl ball.
In swing, teams of two women swing on high swings, trying to touch a row of bells. Whichever team hits the bells the most times in 10 minutes wins.
Pearl ball has some rules like basketball and some like volleyball (without a center net). But the baskets are held by players, and they move around the court. Some players hold rackets to hit the ball away from the baskets.
