TBILISI, Georgia -- Wrestlers Georgy Bibilauri and Dzhambulat Khotokhov had both hoped for victory, but they settled for ice cream instead.

The pair, two of the world's largest preschoolers, proved evenly matched Wednesday in an unusual contest in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi.

Khotokhov, a Russian weighing 56 kilograms with a height of 118 centimeters, is the world's largest 4-year-old, according to the match's organizers.

Tbilisi native Bibilauri, who turned 5 on Wednesday, is 120 centimeters tall and weighs 51 kilograms.

After the boys tied on the mat, they went off to celebrate Bibilauri's birthday with ice cream and chocolate.

Georgian wrestling champion Levan Tediashvili, who refereed the match, said he admired the boys' sportsmanship.

"They are fantastic kids," he said. "These two giants give off such positive vibes. We Russians and Georgians should follow their example."

The match's organizer, Georgian journalist Tengiz Pachkoriya, said he came up with the idea after reading a newspaper article about Khotokhov.

"They became friends after spending the day together yesterday," he said. "I hope the friendship will last many years."


Knowing it is not enough, we must apply.
Willing is not enough, we must do.

The tax laws are written by men with considerable net worth, and with little understanding of what wage-earners must do to make ends meet.

Yah right. All Russians and Georgians should be grossly overweight by age 4 at the latest and die of heart attack at age 30.
