From the 13th to the 17th of November Salekhard will host one of the most iconic, beautiful and original sports events of peoples of the North — the Cup of Russia in the Northern All-around. Teams from the Republic of Komi, Magadan Oblast, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Evenk Autonomous Okrug, Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug will participate in the competitions.
The participants will have to prove themselves in five traditional disciplines: triple national jump, running with a stick, throwing of an axe at the distance, throwing of a tynzyan on a khorey, jumping over narty – northern nomadic sledges. (A tynzyan is a rope lasso for catching a reindeer; a khorey is a long pole for driving a reindeer sleigh).
According to the information given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the regional department of physical culture and sports, the Northern All-around is traditionally of great importance for peoples of the North of our country, being a reflection of everyday life and culture of indigenous northerners.
As we should note, the team of Yamal is stably among the top three of the strongest regions at the Competitions and Championships of Russia.
