If you think curling is weird, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Here are 3 of the strangest sports that you’ve probably never heard of.
1. Cheese Rolling
This lovely sport was born at Cooper’s Hill in Gloucestershire, U.K. It’s simple. A large wheel of cheese is rolled down a steep hill, and competitors race after it. The first person to reach the bottom of the hill wins the cheese. If you are looking for fun times and a shitload of injuries, this may be the sport for you!
2. Wife Carrying
Wife Carrying, originating in Finland, is exactly what it sounds like. A man must carry his wife through an obstacle course as fast as he can. The Wife Carrying World Championships are held annually in July, and the winners receive the traditional prize of the wife’s weight in beer.
3. Chess Boxing
Chess boxing is the ultimate test of wits and brawn. This sport is a hybrid of knocking out and checkmating opponents. The duel consists of 11 rounds in which competitors alternate between playing chess and boxing.
