5 Weirdest Sports You Didn’t Know Existed

Sports are great, aren’t they? No matter where you live or which team you root for, there’s nothing like watching a great game of football, basketball, baseball, cheese rolling — wait, what?!

So apparently not everyone gets their fix with the mainstream sports in America or any other country for that matter. Who knew?!

It turns out that things like Turkish oil wrestling, kabaddi, British shin kicking, wife carrying and cheese rolling are all real things with real contestants, matches/games and prizes! And no, they’re not the highlights of the Redneck Games (formerly known as the Redneck Olympics).

What’s crazy is the rules (or lack thereof) that are involved in these sports (and we use that term loosely, especially for the last few). I mean, why would oil-soaked men try to put their hands down either others’ pants to win a “wrestling match”? Looks squirrely if you ask me.

But if you think that’s the weirdest of it, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Check out the video above and you’ll see what I mean.
