No matter if you choose to watch or play, sports are some of the best activities in the world. But, we aren’t just talking about regular sports like football, soccer, baseball, basketball, etc. There are so many sports that a lot of people haven’t even heard of until now. It’s strange to think these sports aren’t as popular as they should be. Once you read our list of the five strangest sports we never knew existed, you won’t care who will win the world series.


Wife Carrying

Some people have recently been informed of this sport based on videos that have popped up on the internet. Wife carrying it pretty self-explanatory through the name. Husbands must have their wives strapped on their backs and race through an obstacle course against other husbands and wives. This may sound painful, but the prize is worth the pain. First place gets to drown themselves in free beer.


Joggling

Do you like to run? Do you enjoy juggling? If you said yes to both of those questions, then this is the sport for you. Joggling is a sport where you race against other runners while juggling. It may sound easy for some, but don’t get too confident. You must run up to thirteen miles while juggling the whole time. But, if you are one of those crazy people then, by all means, do what you love and juggle some balls while running thirteen miles.


Kabaddi

Like capture the flag, but there are more tackling and less retrieving flags. The sport involves a player, a raider, from a team into an area where the opposing team stands. The opposing team must prevent the raider from going back into there space. Sounds easy right? No! While weaving and ducking through people, you must also hold your breath. The sport looks like you could die from lack of oxygen but it also sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.


Octopush

This is essentially hockey underwater. For those of you who can’t skate, try octopush. All you need is a snorkel, a small stick, and five other people who have no life to push a puck around underwater. Have fun with this strange sport and please, don’t drown.


Bossaball

Take the sports soccer, volleyball and gymnastics and put a trampoline in it and you got bossaball. Teams must jump on a trampoline doing tricks and flips to keep the ball from touching an unoccupied area of the ground, just like volleyball. We don’t know why this sport is not on ESPN, and we would pay good money to watch this sport.
