In the photo — Angela la Folclorica, jumping in the ring in El Alto (Bolivia), where every Sundays they have fights of "cholitas". Cholitas are women from Titans of the Ring team, which is made up of luchadors (lucha libre wrestlers — lucha libre is a type of wrestling popular in Mexico and Japan, which is known primarily by typical masks). The idea to include women wrestlers first came to the president of the Titans Juan Mamami, as female fights attract thousands of spectators. Cholitas are mostly natives of El Alto — Aymara and Quechua. Outside the ring they wear braided hair, bowler hats and layered skirts.
