Cloned horse raises hopes for equestrian sports in China


For an equestrian sports industry pegged back by its reliance on expensive imported horses, Zhuang Zhuang, China’s first competition-approved clone, has presented an opportunity to break free. The popularity of equestrian competition in China has taken off in recent years, but horses costing “from a few million to 10 or 20 million yuan” has put the halters on it.

  • Aston, the bull who thinks he's a horse

    At the foot of the vineyards outside a sleepy village in northern France, Sabine Rouas and her steed Aston, a 1.4-tonne (3,000-pound) bull, make stately progress.

"Honestly, I didn't invent this," she says. "Look around the world, people ride all sorts of animals -- ostriches, camels, elephants."

  • Ancient Indian sport builds bridges across cultures in Hong Kong

    Overlooked by high-rises on the outskirts of Hong Kong, a group of students practise body-slam tackles and vicious ankle-wrenches at weekly training for an unlikely sport: the ancient Indian game of kabaddi. Though its professional league has a huge following in India and surrounding nations, kabaddi -- a highly physical game where the object is to tag the rival team, often by brute force -- is relatively unknown outside the region. But eight years ago two Chinese anthropologists set up a Hong Kong team to encourage integration in a city which, despite its status as an international hub, can be less than inclusive, especially when it comes to non-white and non-Chinese residents.
