Takraw/Kataw

Takraw/Kataw is a popular game in South East Asia, played between teams of two or three players using only their feet and heads to pass a rattan ball around a volleyball-type court. The killer move is when the spiker gets his foot high in the air (the net is five or six feet off the ground) and smashes the ball into the opposition court.

Laos 2008 & 2010.
