The Oiled Wrestling is one of the most popular sports in Turkey. The wrestlers wear tight short leather trousers called "Kispet", made of water buffalo leather weighing approximately 13 kilograms (29 pounds), and they cover themselves with olive oil. Thousands of people from different age groups, cultures and regions travel to Edirne every year to see Pehlivan (wrestlers) fight for the Kırkpınar Golden Belt and the title of Chief Pehlivan. On the grass, the two oiled wrestlers compete, unlike more common wrestling formats, to pick each up in the air and “make their belly face the sky.” After the end of the first day of the festival, we will return the hotel.
