5 Sports You’ve Probably Never Tried

Here’s some sports you’ve probably never tried…and maybe never heard of!

1. TOE WRESTLING

Just like it sounds…toe wrestling involves two people going toe-to-toe…err…head-to-head!

The unusual sport dates back to 1976, when the Brits were looking to gain a world sports title.

Rules are simple: with socks and shoes off, two competitors interlock their toes and try to “pin” down their opponent’s foot.

2. JOGGLING

Joggling is a competitive sport that combines juggling with jogging. 

In competitions or long term events, most jogglers prefer to use palm-size beanbags stuffed with birdseed because it’s light enough for long distances but heavy enough to withstand winds.

3. KARATE

The ancient art has been in the United States since 1945 (it was created long before that).

Most people in modern society use martial arts not only for self defense but other aspects like fitness, self-esteem, and concentration.

4. WIFE CARRYING COMPETITION

Originating in Finland, men enter wife carrying competitions, in the hope of winning the weight of their partner in beer. Finnish couple, Ville Parviainen and Janette Oksman (pictured), won the race last year.

5. EXTREME IRONING

The official explanation of Extreme Ironing via the Extreme Ironing Bureau is that it’s “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.” Ironing boards are taken to virtually anywhere you can think of: caves, forests, waterfalls, out on kayaks, and into New York City, and the competitors…iron. The sport originated in Britain, and has actually gotten a surprising amount of media coverage
