"Did I Win?"

With increasingly difficult tasks, Mongolian horsemen (note the scale of man and horse) begin the competition by picking up a 15 food spear from the ground at full gallop. Those successful move to the next round, where an 18 inch club is picked up. Those moving on vie to pick up the most goat knuckles from a pile in the ground. That afternoon the winner got hold of 11. From the ground, at full gallop.
