National Games in International Format

In the most famous resort city of Türkiye – Antalya – the Sixth Forum of the World Ethnosport Confederation took place with the participation of representatives of various organisations and federations of national sports games from more than 50 countries, including Turkmenistan.

And intellectual competitions in “oware” (West Africa), “mangala” (Turkiye) and “togyzkumalak” (Kazakhstan) are very similar to the Turkmen games “düzzüm” and “takylatdy”. Therefore, our athletes have every chance to collect a large “harvest” of awards in Astana. But let’s return to the Forum in Antalya.
