ARCHERY - THE NATIONAL SPORT
Because the country is unique in so many ways, we were not surprised to find that

traditional bamboo bows constructed with natural materials available in the country
and 2) modern composition bows (titanium, etc.) like those used in the Olympics. Teams
are fielded by every village as well as by the bigger cities.
