Life here is serious (2012)

Sovkhoz Alieva, RUSSIA, 2012 - Ragim Khalikov (12) in a wrestling school in Sovkhoz Alieva. 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.
