Tug of war on water! What else will Poles come up with? Posted by Kasia on Apr 7, 2015 in Sports
It looks like a lot of fun! Have you heard about it yet, all the sports fans out there?
Check out this video of a brilliant new rowing game, “invented” in Poland.
In a twist on old favourite Tug of War, two teams (dwie drużyny) of rowers (wioślarze) – six on six – face each other on either end of a single boat floating in a swimming pool (basen). A rope across the water indicates the middle and the boat is positioned in the dead center of the pool before the rowing starts. The two teams then row furiously, with the aim being to push the boat forward and move their end into the center. After your first watch, you might wonder why the team that crossed the line is celebrating. The aim is to push your team over the line rather than drag the other!
There is no suggested name for it … yet. But 9NEWS employees came up with a few that should be in the running:
Which name do you like the best and what do you think about it??? Will it become an Olympic event one day?
