During our travels, we here at Roving Panda try to enjoy as many local customs as possible and over the years we’ve come across some truly weird and wonderful sports – some here at home and others from around the world. Here is our list of our top 10 weird sports from around the world – if you ever get the chance to participate, we highly recommend you do.
Held annually at Cooper’s Hill near Gloucester in England, the Cheese Rolling Competition sees participants from around the globe. One of the last winners was a man from Japan. The rules of the game states that you roll a 9 lb. Double Gloucester cheese from the top of the hill and start racing down after it. The first person over the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese. Absolute insanity!
The “sport” has become so popular its been exported to other countries including our friends in Canada. Note the difference in safety gear between the Brits and the Canadians!
