Tug-of-war. Heroic sport

Tough team sport

Tug of war is a sport that pits two teams against each other in a test of strength: teams pull on opposite ends of a rope, with the goal being to bring the rope a certain distance in one direction against the force of the opposing team’s pull.

Eight members of each team, whose total weight should not exceed the maximum for a given weight category, are located at different ends of the rope, the circumference of which is from 10 cm to 12.5 cm, and the length is not less than 33.5 m. And at a distance of 4 meters from it there are two side marks. Before the start of the competition, the teams stand so that the center mark is above the line drawn on the ground. At the signal from the referee, each team begins to pull the rope, trying either to make the mark nearest to the opponents cross the line on the ground, or to the opposing team get a foul, which is counted if someone from the team sits down or falls.
