Are you tired of the same old sports and looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? What about ironing your shirt at a height of more than 5,000 meters above sea level or coaxing approximately 570 worms out of the ground with limited time? Strange as it may sound, every year hundreds of people all over the world gather to compete and capture the joy of these sports in the World Championship. However, this is not the end of the story: there are plenty of other strange sporting events that are either the recreation or the hybrid of popular games.
11. Cheese rolling
Every year a 9 lb round of cheese is sent rolling down the top of Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England and the competitors start chasing after it. However, the cheese may reach speeds of up to 70 mph and the chances of catching it are pretty low. So, the person who crosses the finish line first wins the cheese. If you decide to take part in this competition, you should be extremely careful because the uneven surface of Cooper’s Hill may cause serious injuries.
