The Maasai Olympics

Hunting for medals 尋獵獎牌


In the shadows of Mount Kilimanjaro, warriors are warming up.

The event was brought about to discourage the traditional practice of hunting, which has taken the local lion population to the brink of extinction.

The games will allow young men to showcase their skills and also preserve the big cats.
