Google Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling.
The definition of what is and isn't required for something to be a sport is pretty subjective. One person's sport is another person's pass-time (or waste of time lol).
Don't set me off about Fox Hunting being referred to as a sport.....I think the term becomes blood sport. Not sure where the skill comes into it? Horse riding is the limit of skill involved.
