The new sport has its own YouTube channel with tens of thousands of subscribers and rules that are crazy.
Russian sport has been decimated by the war in Ukraine as several athletes and teams in the country were excluded from European competitions. What was the solution you found? Create a new sport, of course.
the new sport combines basketball, rugby and wrestling and is called Wrestball, a completely surreal invention where the concoction of disciplines and give rise to a crazy game that seems to have neither head nor tail. However they seem to understand it perfectly.
Wrestball has its own YouTube channel and an audiovisual production that has little or nothing to envy to professional sports broadcasts. The first images of this peculiar show They have not left anyone indifferent.
To begin with, it should be noted that, unlike basketball, the serving team is not chosen by jumping between two, but rather through a wrestling match between two players.
Although the purpose is hit the ball in the basketthis seems to be the only similarity with basketball, since the players do not bounce the ball and can take an infinite number of steps with it in their hands.
Tackles are similar to rugby, being common to see races stopped abruptly and even demolitions when the ball is not in play. Something that is more difficult to understand is with what criteria a foul is charged,
The parties consist of three periods of 10 minutes and in case of a tie there is an extension, as happened in the match between URF Wrestball and Skolkovo Wrestball, where we can also see that the members are not exactly fine stylists with the ball in their hands.
A sport that coincides with the news of the return of SmallBallthe basketball on elastic mats that became so popular in the early 2000s and that promises to be another great entertainment for lovers of pseudo-basketball.
