Unusual Pastime Competitions
These are just a few of the day to day activities and pastimes that are now elite sports - well at least they have a competition. You can just see a few kids in the back yard playing a game of paper-scissors-rock, and saying 'lets start a world championships - you against me!'
- Chess Boxing - mixing brains and brawn. Chess used to be such a gentleman's game.
- Paper-Scissors-Rock — World Championship event.
- Lawn Mower Racing — carving up the lawn.
- Extreme Ironing — who said ironing is difficult?
- Disc Sports — throwing a frisbee has never been so competitive.
- Horseshoes — having a toss was once done at home in the yard.
