In Life here is serious we describe the North Caucasus' most popular national sport, wrestling. Every town and village has a wrestling school. North Caucasians always win medals at the Olympics. In the Caucasus wrestling is not just a sport, it is an integral part of the culture and history of a region paralyzed by war and violence. ‘Wrestling is serious, because life here is serious.’
