The First American Football Team in Xizang

Qiongniao, consisting of more than 40 players from various industries in Lhasa, Xizang, is the first American football team in Xizang.

American football is a very competitive sport, which is not easy to play on the plateau because of the high altitude, less oxygen, and other factors. The name of the team is “Qiongniao”, which is also called the great golden-winged bird. It is considered the holy king of birds in Tibetan culture.
