COME ON PEHLIVAN! (These words are shouted at the beginning of a fight between the wrestlers as a call to a duel)
Place: Calikli, Valandovo, a football stadium with lovely green grass, zurlas, drums, hundreds of litres of oil, one pelivan Aga, tens of judges, hundreds of pelivans of all ages, active and retired freestyle wrestlers. It was the place and time for hundreds of domestic and foreign tourists to enjoy the skill of this traditional sport for two days.
