My book Sports the Olympics Forgot is advertised here.
Sports YOU should know more about.
This book describes 40 new sports you probably should not try at home including:
- The Dracula Race in Romania. Here contestants have to run around Sighisoara before cycling to Bran Castle and cook kebabs on the way.
- Mongol Vegetable Chopping from Russia. Participants have to chop vegetables whilst riding along on horseback.
- Curling Pool from the USA. Here the players have to score points, by trying to ricochet their curling stones into depressions in the ice.
All the stories are individual and distinct and can be read independently if necessary; a book for the busy individual who perhaps has five minutes to spare to understand the complexities of Bull Pulling or Unicycle Volleyball.
None of these sports should be attempted at home; the best way to research these sports further would be to find the relevant sporting associations on the Internet and contact them. These associations would also be able to put you in touch with like-minded individuals.
