Kirkpinar Oil Wrestling Festival, Turkey

Kirkpinar Oil Wrestling Festival

For nearly 700 years, numerous pehlivan (wrestlers) have converged on Edirne, Turkey for Kirkpinar, an oil-wrestling festival in which of all shapes and sizes, dressed in nothing but kisbet (traditional cowhide trousers) and doused in olive oil, battle it out one-on-one.

The last man standing walks away with the Kirkpinar Golden Belt and the title of Chief Pehlivan. This weeklong festival, a UNESCO Intangible Heritage event, draws thousands of onlookers each year, and is said to be the longest-standing annual sporting event in the history of the world.
