Camel Wrestling Tournament

Camels have been used by Yörük people as beasts of burden for millenia. Although this is much less common these days, owning a big strong camel is still a matter of great pride. Camel wrestling tournaments are held each year in many places in Turkey. These pictures were taken by Martyn Bayley. Martyn has agreed to share them on this site. Thank you Martyn.
