Our Photo of the Day series this week shares photos from Inner Mongolia, taken during the Naadam period last year.

The wrestling and the horse races aren’t just for sport, there are some big winnings involved. At least, there are if you think of several thousand RMB in cash and a sheep as big winnings. Above you can see some of the runners and riders awaiting the presentation of their prizes; below the winners trot off with sheep in tow.

Alas, they are sheep rather than goats, meaning we’re not able to make a G.O.A.T joke, but never mind.
