The heat is on Turkey's wrestlers

While the Americans dominate the track and field, it is the Turkish who are expected to walk away with gold in the ring.


    Turkey have had more success in wrestling than at any other sport at the Olympic Games winning 28 out of 37 medals.

    But with London 2012 around the corner, the pressure is on for their biggest stars - such as Riza Kayaalp - to perform.
