    Well, many consider hunting a sport (albeit not an Olympic one!). It pre-dates wrestling, at least in the Bible. Maybe there are other ancient records that could shed further light that I don't know about. But regardless--we all know it's the best one!

    No. It was in the early 80s for a few years. My sister i law was born there actually.

    I don't even know what to call that. Anyone? I got to go to Inner Mongolian in 1987. I can tell you that the ground there is very hard! I lived in a Yurt for a week (I can hear the Dr Suess rhymes going already) & rode horses & camels & WATCHED wrestling & their horseback stunts.

Very interesting to see how different forms of wrestling are practiced in different countries. Wrestling is quite possibly the world's oldest sport. In Genesis it's mentioned that Jacob wrestled with God--that goes pretty far back!!
    I think that this is wear Vince McMahon got the last man standing idea....wrestling with God might be a good work out btw.

    Not to be confused with the world's oldest profession....
