Something about wrestling

Post by sabina » Fri Jul 21, 2017 6:49 pm

Wrestling is one of the most masculine sport and here's an interesting story about it :!:
Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of combat, dating back 15,000 years as shown on cave drawings found in France. Egyptian and Babylonian images depict wrestlers using the holds common today in wrestling matches. Wrestling was a prominent sport in ancient Greece, and was the main sport of the ancient Olympic Games. When the ancient Romans wrestled they eliminated a lot of the brutality present in the ancient Greek wrestling. In the Middle Ages wrestling was popular among the Royal Families of England, Japan and France. English settlers in America brought the sport with them, and since then it has evolved to become both a popular serious sport and a form of staged entertainment.
I think wrestling lovers will like this topic and which interesting fact or something else do you know about it :)
