This year, Lai An village and Phu Mau commune authorities receive a certificate of merit from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism for their great contribution to the management and organization of the festival.

The wrestling festival of Sinh village this year attracts more than 100 wrestlers of all ages. For over 400 years of existence and development, Sinh village wrestling has become one of the cultural activities featuring sporting spirit. A unique feature of Sinh village wrestling festival is the team spirit of the localities. If a wrestler of a village loses, another wrestler of this village will replace him. If the wrestlers lose their matches, they have to wait until the next year to "revenge". Thus, wrestlers often train and cultivate morals throughout the year to wait until the next early spring to attend and compete in the wrestling festival.
