Below are 5 interesting sports you probably have never heard of:
1.) Cheese Rolling:
Chris Anderson wins the first race during the annual unofficial cheese rolling at Cooper’s Hill in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, where a cheese wheel has been chased down the 200-yard, one-in-three gradient hill every year since the early 1800s.
Competitors race after a large cheese wheel that is rolled down a steep hill. The first person to reach the bottom of the hill wins the cheese.
In Snowkiting, participants use a parachute-like kite and wind power to ride around on hills. You can literally soar over slopes or glide up mountains, all while doing stunts.
Russia, Canada, Iceland, France, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Sweden and the Northern and Central United States.
When you put running and juggling together and what do you get? Someone who has pretty unreal hand-eye coordination. Most jogglers use palm-size beanbags that are stuff with birdseed.
All over, and they meet up every year for the World Joggling Championships.
4.) Underwater Hockey:
Underwater Hockey was initiated in 1954 by Alan Blake. It is also called Octopush. In Underwater Hockey, two teams of six battle it out on the bottom of a pool, using snorkels and mini sticks, who used it as a means of keeping the members of the Southsea Sub-Aqua Club interested and active during the cold months of winter.
Worldwide, but the Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques, abbreviated CMAS, is the governing body.
5.) Swamp Football:
Swamp Football is primarily soccer, but played in a bog. Each team has six players on the field at a time. The sport was first used as exercise for athletes and soldiers but is now more popular.
It started in Finland, there are now about 300 teams worldwide. The annual cup is held in Scotland.
