WATCH: Awesome new sport  is a tug of war on water

Check out this video of a brilliant new rowing game, reportedly invented in Poland.

In a twist on old favourite Tug of War, two teams of rowers face each other on either end of a single boat floating in a swimming pool.

A rope across the water indicates the middle and the boat is positioned in the dead centre of the pool before the rowing starts.

The two teams then row furiously, with the aim being to push the boat forward and move their end into the centre.

Looks brilliant, we fully get behind any campaign to get this sport into the Olympics.

As we are used to traditional Tug of War we did find it a little confusing on first watch, wasn’t the wrong team celebrating?

But no - the aim is to push your team over the line rather than drag the other.
