Marvel at the strength of the greased up athletes at the Kirkpinar Oil Wrestling Championship in Turkey. Dating back to the 14th century, these games are believed to be the oldest wrestling event in the world.Wrestlers from all over Turkey and the rest of the world cover themselves in olive oil to compete in these traditional championships each year. The competition climaxes in Edirne where the final is held. Witness this slippery event with our Oil Wrestling Championship bolt-on, available on our Turkey Unplugged and Aegean Explorer tours.
