The first sport to ever be recorded was a foot race, the only event hosted at the Ancient Olympic Games way back in 760 BC. More events were added in the years to come: such as boxing, discus, javelin, wrestling, and jumping. Interestingly, wrestling is said to be the only sport mentioned in the Bible, so many queries which sport was invented first. Chinese history describes a sport known as ‘Tsu Chu,' which was very similar to soccer in the way that no hands were allowed and the sport focused on kicking a small leather ball into a small hole – a sort of combination of soccer and golf. Nowadays, soccer is the most popular sport played globally and captivates the hearts of millions of people worldwide. At the 2020 Olympic Games, there is scheduled to be a record-breaking 33 main events, the most contested in Olympic history.
