Remember the comedy “Shaolin Soccer” starring Stephen Chow? It was an over-the-top film that featured a mix of soccer and Shaolin kung-fu. Well, believe it or not, Shaolin soccer exists in real life!
The younger students of the Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng City, China have found an original way of practicing their kung-fu and enjoying themselves at the same time. Whenever they’re not busy meditating, studying or working around the temple, the boys, aged 15 to 18, engage in a spectacular game of Shaolin soccer.
Just like in the above mentioned film, Shaolin soccer features both soccer and kung-fu moves, combined in a very entertaining way. The young monks leap through the air, kick the football like it’s an opponent, and even sit on their heads,while holding the ball. As you can imagine, every one of their Shaolin soccer games draws quite the local crowd.
We all know that Brazil won 2-1 but this is how the match played out according to North Korea LOL ...North Korea is so pathetic
And just like that, I’m a Netherlands fan. She’s a sexy cutie.
What do you need to play basketball? Not much
Just a tree and a chair frame. Why not! :)
Unfortunately, in the great and bizarre world of sport, many participants do get hurt. Most of the injuries you hear about are maybe bruises or cuts, or the injury happens to a tendon or muscle, so you can't really notice what is wrong with the injured person. However, there are those grotesque and disgusting injuries in which you know that person will not be participating in that sort for a long time!
Here are just a few of the worst injuries captured on camera: I'm not even sure if this is real as his leg just snaps for no obvious reason. If this is real then he won't be back in a cage for a while even his whole life! What a sport
Horrible football injury on Djibril Cissé. He was lucky and managed to continue his career after this leg break:
This video shows many different sports injuries, some bad and some really bad:
This leg break not because of his name (Busst) but of the reaction of Peter Schmeichel. Unfortunately Busst never played professional football again after this horror injury.
MEEP! (I hope the Russianish text is not racist or anything lol).
