Turkish Men All Lubed Up, Wrestlingby Trey C. on July 8, 2008
It was definitely a field-full of testosterone in Edirne, Turkey this week as thousands of men-ly wrestlers oiled up and giddy-up on top of each other. Oil Wrestling is one of the oldest continuously held sporting event in the world – 647 years and counting. It’s held every summer in Edirne in western Turkey near the border of Greece and Bulgaria. The sport attracts well over 1000 wrestlers and about fives times as many spectators. Photos courtesy of Istanbul Mike for TREY CRUZ.
