See the Bolivian fighting cholitas
See Bolivia's unlikely new wrestling stars compete in the ring.
Performing athletic scissor kicks, leaping from the ropes and throwing each other around the ring with ferocious vigour, the Fighting Cholitas certainly don't fit the shy and retiring stereotype of the indigenous Andean woman.
These diminutive ladies in their bowler hats and traditional full skirts compete in the wrestling ring every Sunday, carving out their own niche in a sport once reserved only for men. Join the crowds to watch these feisty females fight it out in the former suburb of El Alto, now a city in its own right, perched high above La Paz at a staggering 4,150m.
