'Rural Olympics' attract stuntmen, performers from Raipur

Raipur, Feb 06 (ANI): A unique sports event called the 'Rural Olympics' attracted daredevil performers and stuntmen from across the country. The Kila Raipur Sports Festival, which began on Thursday, includes 40 to 50 events and is a blend of accepted sporting disciplines and certain uncommon pursuits.

Bullock-cart race, one of the main attractions of the event, was replaced by horse race after the apex court put a ban on Jallikattu, a sport involving bulls. The event, where stuntmen lift weights with their ears and beard, also brought enthusiasts from across the country.

Apart from sports, the dance performances were also held at the event as part of cultural events to showcase the rich Indian tradition.
