Unspunnen is one of the traditional Swiss sports, which involves throwing a stone weighing 83.5 kilograms.

Vallay (Russia)

Name of sport (game): Vallay
Name in native language: ВӘЛЛӘЙ
Place of practice (continent, state, nation):

Russia

Description:

The novice player lays a “balichuk” peg on the bricks, pushing the “anayagach” stick from below, lifting it, sharply hits the balichuk. The second team immediately runs in the direction of the flying peg in order to catch it in a skullcap or hat. And if they catch the balichuk, then the second team starts playing the game. And if they do not catch the balichuk, then the player continues the game from the place where the balichuk fell. Again they put two bricks, put a balichuk on it and again hit it with a yagach. When hitting a brick, the other team continues the game, then, throwing up a balichuk three times, hits it, and if at this moment the second team still catches the balichuk, then the first team is considered the loser.
