Burak Eryilmaz


Turkish oil wrestler Burak Eryilmaz is the champion of this past June's Kirkpinar tournament, the world's oldest sports competition, approximately 620 years older than the Super Bowl.  And the earliest extant archaeological evidence of the sport of oil wrestling (in Egypt and Mesopotamia) is 4660 years old.  These photos are from Wrestling Arena, which I found via the ever reliable Muscle Jocks.
