Ancient Egyptian Sports : Tug of War


Tug of War


One of the ancient Egyptian plates at the "Marorika tomb" shows teams standing in two opposite rows, with the first players of each row holding hands and pulling back each other while the other members of each team hold each other tightly by the waist and try to pull back the opposite team.

The first contestant in the front has one foot supported by that of his opposite number. This sport is still practiced in the Egyptian countryside.
