Camel jumping is an athletic and an acrobatic sport that originated in the deserts of Yemen. The sport is played professionally, or at any other level, only by the Zaraniq desert tribesmen. The sport which has been played since ancient times, is believed to have originated as a challenge between two Zaraniq tribesmen.

I thought maybe the sport involved jumping ON camels. I was kinda horrified. Til I checked it out on YouTube. It's pretty cool.

Is this related to the ancient Greek sport of leaping over bulls, as depicted on Greek urns? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bull-Leaping_Fresco

It's interesting how man has always found ways of competing against each other. And how people who can't compete will gather to watch. I remember in history class reading about how in the earliest days of the Civil War people would pack a lunch and travel to where the North and South were shooting at each other and find a place where they could sit a watch without being a target.
