I spotted this trophy at my friend’s supplement store yesterday [ShapeUp]. It appears that Lebanon hosted on the 12th of June 2011 the first Arab championship in traditional sports in Dekwaneh.

The sports included (رفع الجرن والمحدلة والمخل) and took place in Emile Lahoud sports complex in Dekwaneh. [Link]

Similar competitions are always organized in the Lebanese villages until today. It would be great if someone broadcasted those games on TV as they are part of our heritage.

PS: The reason I put the sports names in arabic is that I have no clue what they mean in english. If anyone knows, please feel free to share them with us.
