World's Weirdest Sports by Matt Roper
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Extreme Ironing, Chess Boxing, Camel Wrestling. These are just some of the more accessible weird sports that are played in some out-of-the-way and some completely normal parts of the world! Find out all you didn't really want to know about Tejo (a Columbian mix of beer and gunpowder festivities), Buzkashi (or 'pass the goat carcass' fun from Afghanistan) and Kabaddi (think of the fun you'll have holding your breath and wrestling an opponent in your underwear). Perfect gift for the man in your life who has everything..or thinks he has!

Author Biography

Matt Roper is a feature writer for The Daily Mirror. He lived in Brazil for six years, where he managed to survive tarantula attacks, falling coconuts and swimming in piranha-infested waters in the Amazon jungle. He also infiltrated a Bolivian drug gang to investigate child prostitution rings, and dodged bullets to report on death squads in Rio de Janeiro. He returned to the UK after setting up a project for street girls in one of Brazil's biggest cities. He now lives in London with his wife Daniela.
