Oil Wrestling Contest

Oil wrestling is held around the world, though one of the oldest competitions is in Kirkpinar, Edirne Turkey, held in June each year. The wrestling is part of a festival, dating back to 1357 celebrating an Ottoman victory. As you can imagine, the contest involves men covered in oil trying to wrestle the other to the ground - maybe not everyone's idea of fun.
