Senegalese wrestling is an important component of our cultural identity. Once practiced in the countryside after the harvest period, it has become very popular today and is practiced everywhere. It arouses a lot of hope among the youth who practice it to become champion and earn a living. By this trip, I transport you in the middle of the training of the young wrestlers of my village who work a lot hoping to make a career in this national sport.
