What is the most historically relevant sport?
- been doing it since ancient times
- dont need equipment or even skills to practice
- every civilization even indigenous barbaric types had some form of wrestling
Yeah but kicking ball sports have existed for fucking ages, all over the world.
Big drama show
>they were shooting arrows before this shit
Humans were wrestling back when we were still apes before hand tools were invented. pic related
>implying battles weren't decided mostly by formation, discipline and material available
that is OK, pretty relevant along with archery
That said, probably running is the most relevant 'sport' in human history.

The ability to handle long distance running and endurance were literally crucial to man's survival. Had to track and wear down them Mastodon to make sure the tribe could eat. Not to mention all the hunting in Africa.
Wrestling/running. Back to the good old days.
Fuck all that shit; though, I suppose wrestling was just fighting before it was a sport. Perhaps then, running was the first real sport. Contestants can referee themselves without prejudice.
I'm kind of interested in the history now.
You could make an argument for running, swimming, and wrestling, but unlike those archery was specifically practiced and perfected by hunters. They didn't practice swimming or running, they just did those things.
it helped build the greatest, and most relevant, nation on Earth.
Lol. Canada subtly savage as ever.
MMA easy. They've found stuff dating back to ancient Sumer before Egypt showing guys fighting and wrestling at the same time.It predates everything. Track and field came later same with wrestling.
Everything else is hogshit when you consider Mma has been around for over 6000 years
