Athletic prowess doesn’t come in any one particular shape, size or form. Elite athletes boast specific, sport-suited skills which enable them to reign supreme in their chosen athletic endeavor. Sprinters require quick-twitch muscles and powerful legs that can propel them to top speeds, basketball players benefit from being tall and boasting major leaping ability and, yes, even professional eaters like Joey Chestnut must be able to jam an endless stream of hot dogs down their gullet.
The point here is that every sport draws athletes who carry a skill set that helps them thrive within it. Sometimes, though, an athlete needs to look beyond the popular, mainstream options available on the sports landscape and find things that are a little more fringe in nature. Since a sport can essentially consist of anything involving even level competition between two or more parties, we are constantly brainstorming, conceptualizing and inventing new, quirky sporting endeavors. That dedication to innovation has produced inspired new athletic pursuits like snowboarding, but has also borne some head-scratching, hare-brained options as well.
Sport is defined as “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.” Although these athletic pursuits are being labeled as sports, they don’t exactly fit the bill as far as that definition is concerned. Physical exertion? Rock, paper, scissors isn’t likely to make any body parts, short of maybe a fist, work up a sweat. Entertainment? Try telling that to the husband and wife pairings involved in the Wife Carrying Championships, who are interlocked as they navigate a rough, bumpy terrain.
To be fair, let’s take a moment to acknowledge that, on the surface, just about any sport can seem awfully ludicrous. Football is essentially a game in which burly, 300-pound men battle over possession of a piece of oblong-shaped pigskin. Golf amounts to little more than an agonizing attempt to use a stick to move a small white ball closer and closer to a hole situated hundreds of yards away. Of course, we’re all prejudicially geared towards our own sports preferences. The only ‘true sports’ are the ones that we grow up following, with all others being pale imitations.
Still, though, some activities that loosely fit within the broad category of sport can merit shakes of the head on their name, alone. Dwarf Tossing and Solo Synchronized Swimming stand as two of the more perplexing entries on the list, the former for its cruel and juvenile nature and the latter for its remarkable ability to be both moronic and oxymoronic. Beyond the names, these 10 sports are either unsafe, insensitive, poorly conceived or the product of some alcohol-induced stupidity. Or all of the above.
Even the most die-hard sports fan would find these supposed sports to be a little half-baked. Here are the 10 dumbest sports ever conceived.
