    This is fascinating. I had never even heard of the Kila Raipur Rural Olympics. And just to think that someone could hold up a bicycle in air is totally unbelievable until I saw this. I had only heard of these sports before. But it is good to see that some states recognize these sports and reward them.

    Wow that picture has me intrigued! Love seeing how different cultural put on sporting events. It’s a bummer that the Olympics had to be postponed this year! Hopefully smaller events like this can still happen!

    I got goosebumps on my skin when I looked at your photos as they have so much endurance. I think these participants should be sent to Olympics for some sports as they have high potential. I am interested now to visit Killa Raipur for such event.

    Wow, never heard of it, Kila Raipur Rural Olympics but I am glad they have something like this to encourage sports, competition and skill showcasing in the rural parts of India, allowing the people some visibility and platform to show their strength. Potato sack and tyre lifting competitions sound (and look) very interesting, certainly very creative!
