Turkish Oil Wrestling "Yagli Gures"
Read our full story here: http://teamhippo.com/mongol-rally-day-17/ Mission Completed! For this FUNraiser mission we originally planned to simply oil wrestle in front of the Kırkpınar stadium in Edirne, Turkey. When we arrived we met the super nice folks from AZ 81 SPOR KULÜBÜ (AZ 81 Sports Club). They invited us inside the stadium to wrestle with them! It is like playing baseball in the Yankee Stadium! FYI, both Graham and myself (Kenneth) have no experience in wrestling at all. Then all of a sudden a TV crew from AHBR showed up and we were on Turkish television being interviewed! A HUGE THANK YOU for AZ 81 SPOR KULÜBÜ in Edirne for giving us this tremendous experience! It is our utmost honor to be able to wrestle on the sacred field of Kırkpınar stadium. Together with our pledgers' generous donations and our silly "elbow grease", we together save over 8.25 acres of rainforest in Peru! Teşekkür Ederim (Thank You)!
