Shin kicking is an actual sport being played in England

If you’re not a sports fan, maybe this bizarre sport will entice you! It’s shin kicking, and it involves participants holding onto one another as they, well, kick each other in the shins. The person who remains standing wins. Participants place bundles of straw in their trousers to soften the blows, but just watching this video makes us all feel a little uncomfortable. Ouch! The ‘sport’ is part of the Cotswolds Olympics, which sees other sports thrown into the mix such as wheelbarrow racing and tug-o-war.
