When I first read about this, I thought it was a joke, but it isn’t (surprisingly, there isn’t a proper Wikipedia entry yet, though).
Kronum is a new sport that is a sort of combination of football, basketball and volleyball – check the video out, it’s quite amazing. Here’s a short piece in the Thrillist about it. They aim to democratize sport by ‘handing over the game and all of its leagues to athletes and fans to operate’, though I’m not entirely sure how they’ll do that. I’d love to know more about the people and ideas behind its genesis.
