The Gris-gris Wrestlers of Senegal
On April 4. 2015, Kherou Ngor prays at the grave of his grandfather - who was also a famous Senegalese wrestler - and offers cow's milk on his tombstone. He performs this ritual regularly, both to pay respect to his grandfather and to receive his blessings and strength for upcoming competitions. Mystical rituals and shamanism play a very important role in Senegalese wrestling.
