Top 5 Strangest Sports In The WorldBy Peter C
There are different kinds of sports worldwide, with football, baseball, basketball being some of the world’s most popular sporting events. However, the massive amount of investments and the high level of attention these sports attract is why we rarely hear about other sports.
In this article, you will read about 5 of the world’s weirdest sports you probably have never heard of.
Buzkashi isn’t only one of the most exciting sports in Central Asia but also the national and the traditional sport of Afghanistan. The sport features hundreds of horse riders who attempt to seize calf or goat carcass and drag it towards a goal.
2. Extreme Ironing
Extreme Ironing is one of the weirdest sports in the world because it combines two seemingly unrelated activities. This sport is all about finding the most bizarre possible way to iron your clothes. It is an extreme sport in which participants go to dangerous or remote locations with ironing boards and iron items of clothing.
3. Street Luge
Street Luge is another extreme sport powered by nothing but gravity. It involves participants using longboards to race down a paved road. This activity is powered by gravity because it involves riding down a steep hill.
4. Wife Carrying
Not so many people know that something like this exists as a sport. As strange as it might sound, it is an exciting sport. In this sport, a male participant carries a female teammate and races with other male participants who have female teammates on their backs. The first male participant to race through a special obstacle track wins the game.
This sport involves each participant getting inside a giant transparent plastic (a huge inflatable ball that looks like an orb) and rolling down a hill. This sport is not limited to gentle slopes as it can be practiced on a level surface.
