Life here is serious (2012)

Makhachkala, RUSSIA, 2012 - Suleiman Shidiev (14, 1th place in city championships) after a work out at the Urazhai gym. In the North Caucasus wrestling is the most popular sports. Wrestlers who win an Olympic medal are the demi-gods. People look at you in disbelief if you don't know the names of former Olympic champions like Ali Aliev or Buwaisar Saitiev. It is likely that many gold medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games will be won by Caucasian wrestlers.
