Photo of the day: Let the games begin… Laos style

Friday, July 27, 2012

Here’s a sport you won’t be seeing at the Olympics, but it seemed to be the most popular game in Laos.  There was a national tournament of “Sepak takraw” going on during our visit to Laos in December.  3 men per team, similar to volleyball, except they use their feet and they fly into the air in gravity defying spins.

Let the games begin!
