A rider hits the small ring with his spear during the Alka competition in the town of Sinj in southern Croatia August 8, 2009. Alka is a horseback riding tournament which has been held every August in the Croatian town of Sinj since 1715, commemorating the victory over Ottoman Turkish administration. The tournament is named after the ring, Alka, which the horseback rider has to hit with his spear. Since the end of Croatias independence war in 1995, the Alka has taken on strong political connotations, bringing together war veterans and hardline nationalists, often backed by the powerful Roman Catholic church, who opposed reforms and cooperation with the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague. They have been particularly at odds with President Stjepan Mesic, a pro-European reformer, and booed his speech this year. Picture taken August 8, 2009. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (CROATIA)
