A total of 128 national wrestlers competed in the Naadam’s wrestling tournament and two different horse races took place. Ulsiin Garid (Garuda of Nation) D.Gonchigdamba won at the wrestling tournament, followed by Ulsiin Zaan (Elephant of Nation) Ch.Sanjaadamba.
During the mini Naadam celebration, wife of Hakuho, Sayoko Wada, presented Tuv Province residents with a fully equipped emergency vehicle for local medical services.
