10 Crazy Sports That You (Probably) Never Heard Of

 
 

People can be quite creative when it comes to… well, everything pretty much. Now, if you had been wondering on how to challenge yourself in a different way than your friends that hit the gym everyday, then this post is for you. Below you can find a listing of unusual sports that you don’t come across everyday – providing the right amount of crazy and uniqueness you might (or might not) need…

…Either way, do not try these at home! Consider yourself warned ☺

1. Shin Kicking

If you’re looking forward to get your legs kicked, this is it! Two contestants attempt to kick each other on the shin in order to force their opponent to the ground. It has been described as an English martial art, as it originated in England in the early 17th century. #RIPWalking

2. Chess Boxing

Ever wondered what would be the hybrid child of Chess and Boxing? We did neither, but apparently we don’t have to since somebody already did – welcome to the world of Chess Boxing! The competitors fight in alternating rounds of chess and boxing, in a sport that was invented by a Dutch performance artist. #PunchTheBishop

3. Jai-Alai

Do you know when you throw the ball at a wall waiting to get it back? Usually because you’re bored? Well, there’s a sport out of it – Jai-Alai, considered by some to be the “the fastest sport in the world” because of the ball speed. #GottaHaveBalls

4. Unicycle Hockey

Like the name suggests, this sport consists on…

*drum roll*

Guys mounted on unicycles playing hockey! #WelcomeToCirqueDuSoleil

5. Underwater Rugby

If you thought Unicycle Hockey = hard, then that’s because you haven’t been watching enough Underwater Rugby matches lately. During one, two teams try to score a negatively buoyant ball (filled with saltwater) into the opponents’ goal at the bottom of a swimming pool. #NeedSomeCPR

6. Buzkashi

Buzkashi literally means “goat grabbing” in Persian. Still wondering what it’s about? Okay, we will explain: a bunch of horse-mounted players attempt to place a goat or calf carcass in a goal. Looks animal friendly, and totally not gross. #SomebodyCallPETA

7. Wife Carrying

Wife Carrying is a contest in which male competitors, husbands, race while each carrying their wives on their shoulders. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time. The best part? The prize depends on the wife’s weight in beer. Thank you Finland for such a nice sport. #ILoveMyWifeAndIKnowIt

8. Bog Snorkeling

Tired of swimming pools? You’re gonna love this: Bog snorkelling is a sporting event that consists of competitors completing two consecutive lengths of a water-filled trench cut through a peat bog in the shortest time possible. Simple and clean. #StillCoughingMud

9. Eton Wall Game

If you ever go through England and see a bunch of man getting smashed against a wall, don’t worry – it’s not a brawl, it’s the Eton Wall Game! Even though not so popular nowadays, it has been played since the early 1700s, and it consists on… well, we’re not sure of what. All we know is that there is a ball and that the last time somebody scored a goal was on 1909. Seems like fun… #NotSureWhatToHashtag

10. Bed Racing

Yup, it’s exactly what you think. #BedGoals
