In Tajikistan, the national sport is gushtigiri, a form of traditional wrestling. It’s distinct for its colorful tradition. Other popular sports in Tajikistan are horse racing and buzkashi (goat grabbing), a traditional Central Asian team sport played on horseback.

Tajikistan's mountains provide many opportunities for outdoor sports, such as hill climbing, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and mountain climbing.
