Archery besides being national sports is also the most popular sport. Traditionally it is played with bamboo bows and arrows. The small targets are placed at around 130-140 meters apart and it is very difficult to make a hit with traditional bows. However, many archery enthusiasts are going for imported bows (with pulleys) these days.
During an archery match, it is not uncommon to see group of young girls cheering their teams with songs while at the same time distracting the archers of the opposing team.
