Wrestling for change: Fighting a way of life in Dagestan

How wrestling is changing lives in a turbulent part of Russia.

Wrestling is a way of life in Dagestan, a region in southern Russia which produces many of the sport’s world champions.

It is not only the number one sport there, but also a way to keep young men away from gang violence and illegal drugs.
