Wrestlers Going ‘Into Bridge’ On Budapest's Liberty Bridge
Over 200 wrestlers will simultaneously “go into bridge” in an attempt to set a record on Budapest’s Liberty Bridge which will be closed to vehicle traffic on Saturday afternoon.

Budapest is hosting the World Wrestling Championships between October 20 and 28 and the event is being held to promote the tournament, former Olympic silver medallist Sándor Bárdosi told MTI.

Visitors will get to meet members of the Hungarian team competing in the championships and watch them train. Champlion, a wrestling lion mascot, be there too, he added.
