The Kirkpinar Oil Wrestling Festival, which ended on Friday in Turkey, is one of the world’s oldest sports events, being held annually in the Edirne Province since 1362. Wrestlers wear leather pants, douse their bodies in olive oil and tackle each other on grass fields to the last man standing. The winner earns the title “Baspehlivan” (Chief Wrestler).
