At the Seventh National Traditional Sports Contest of Agricultural Working People held on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK, the participants gave full play to their protean skills and talents in the events of ssirum, seesaw, yut-game and so on which they had polished during breaks of work.
