English aristocrats who came to Asia began playing polo on elephants. As a sport it was officially registered at the end of last century. Originally, a soccer ball was used to play the game, but the animals tended to smash it. Afterwards, a standard polo ball was used. The length of pucks differs depending on an elephant’s height. Capoeira was originally created in Africa as a dance. Later this sport came to Brazil. In this country it received further development. A great number of new elements have been added. Nowadays, it is a national Brazilian sport combining the elements of acrobatics, dances and martial arts. Royal football (or “Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Football”) is an ancient tradition of England.
