"What a strange sport!" Faramir remarked as he observed the wrestlers at the fair.
"It is indeed," Aragorn replied. "I would liefer go swimming or practise with sword or bow when I desire exercise. I have studied unarmed combat, but never wrestling."
"Is it true that Elves wrestle without clothing?" Faramir enquired.
"On occasion they do."
Faramir shuddered. "A curious pastime indeed!" The two men applauded as one of the wrestlers emerged the victor. Aragorn presented a prize to the winner.
"Let us go and watch the archery now," said the King. "That is far more to my liking."
