Ten Most Unusual/Odd Sports In The World

10) WORLD GURNING CONTEST

A competition where the ugliest face wins, which would be an easy competition for some, though it is not something that I would be proud of winning.

9) POOH STICKS

A not so sticky event invented by the book character Pooh Bear. A game in which each player throws a stick over the upstream side of a bridge into a stream or river, the winner being the person whose stick emerges first from under the bridge.

8) UNDERWATER RUGBY

You have seen many matches of rugby in the ground but not in the swimming pool. Underwater rugby is weird kind of rugby that is played in a swimming pool. In particular game, two teams trying to gain the control of a buoyant ball filled with saltwater and passing it into a heavy metallic bucket serving as opponent’s goal.

7) WIFE CARRYING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

This sport is started at Sonkajärvi, Finland. It is one of the weird sports in which male competitors race while each carrying a female teammate. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time. Wife Carrying World Championships are held annually in Sonkajärvi, Finland since 1992. And the minimum weight of the wife to be carried is 49 kilograms.

6) BUZKASHI

Buzkashī is the national game of Afghanistan. It is a rugged equestrian game, played predominantly by Turkic peoples in northern Afghanistan, in which riders compete to snatch and retain control of a goat or calf corpse. There are two main types of Buzkashi, Tudabarai and Qarajai. Tudabarai is relatively simple compared with Qarajai, even though they share similar objectives. In BUZKASHI, a headless carcass is placed in the center of a circle and surrounded by the players of two opposing teams. The object of the game is to get control of the carcass and bring it to the scoring area.

4) EXTREME IRONING

Who said ironing was easy?  Extreme Ironing is the latest danger and extreme sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt. In this sport people take ironing boards to remote locations and iron items of clothing. The locations for such performances include a mountainside of a difficult climb; a forest; in a canoe; while skiing or snowboarding; on top of large bronze statues; in the middle of a street; underwater; in the middle of the M1 motorway; under the ice cover of a lake etc.

3) WORLD STINGING NETTLE CHALLENGE

I can understand trying to eat as many eating hot dogs or donuts as you can, but why would anyone want to eat something with the word ‘stinging’ in it?

2) ROYAL SHROVETIDE FOOTBALL

Everyone in town comes out to play this game of football in the streets of Ashbourne in England, where scoring is a rarity.

1) BEER MILE

A Beer mile is a drinking race combining running and speed drinking. Typically, the race takes place on a standard 400 meter or 1/4 milerunning track. The race begins at the 1-mile starting line with the consumption of a standard amount of beer, followed by a full lap around the track.
