English: Oil wrestling ( Turkish: yağlı güreş) is the Turkish national sport. It is known sometimes as grease wrestling because the wrestlers douse themselves with olive oil. It is related to Uzbek Kurash, Tuvan Khuresh and to Tatar Köräş. The wrestlers, known as pehlivan (from Persian پهلوان or pehlevān, meaning "hero" or "champion") wear a type of hand-stitched lederhosen called kisbet (sometimes kispet), which were traditionally made of water buffalo hide, but now also of calfskin.
Türkçe: Yağlı güreş, geleneksel bir Türk sporudur. Güreşçiler vucutlarına yağ sürerek güreştikleri için bu şekilde adlandırılır. Er Meydanı denilen alanlarda yapılır.
