Wrestling is sport nr 1 in Gambia. It is one of the oldest sporting activities in the Gambia, dating back from before the 13th century.

In Serrekunda we visited the large arena, where wrestlers of different villages fighted their match with a lot of supporters and public.

All the wrestlers bring their own drumming group for support and to activate the public. Every village or group has its own traditional tune. This drumming and showing of the wrestlers is one of the nicest parts of the match.

For more pictures and information have a look at my sport tips.
