Oh my gosh, that is so amazing. Mongolia is one of my favorite countries and I always wondered what it would be like if it were to have its own version of SASUKE/ANW. I can't wait to see how it goes, popular sports in Mongolia is stuff like Archery, Wrestling and Horse Racing, a bit of football too I think, so it'll interesting to see what the competitor pool is like (especially because it has such a small population too). On a side note, they should be cruel like in Japan and run it at night in the Winter. In Mongolia it gets to like negative 30 degrees Celsius.

Little rant about Sasuke Mongolia:
The obstacle choices are really neat, but the time limits for the super easy. Stages 1 and 2 are both 3 minutes, and everyone experienced could do it in 2 or less. Much less.
The competitors are bad, with some not being able to do the Salmon Ladder, some I think brought on as joke competitors.
The interviews and fluff pieces take up almost 2/3 of the broadcast.
The way they broadcast it is if a competitor beats Stage 1, they immediately show their Stage 2 run and then their Stage 3 run. If they fail Stages 2 or 3, they go to the next competitor and head right back to Stage 1. Whether or not that means we could see a Stage 4 attempt in the middle of the season in the middle of an episode is TBD, but it's really weird.
Pros were the course is nice and there's no silly DQ rules, but overall it's just a really bad show. I'm gonna watch it cuz I honestly think if someone can do the Sidewinder they're going to Stage 4 and potentially winning it all. I think a lot of the Legit Ninjas in this server could make anywhere between Stage 3 and Kanzenseiha, with Philip definitely being in the Kanzenseiha range. But yeah, if you don't want to watch it, I'll keep you all posted if there's a 5th winner in 2019.
The joke competitors are whatever cuz they're joke competitors, but the quality of the show itself from the unstable Quintuple Steps to the editing choice is just plain bad.
