This sport has its origin in Britain which was traced to Oxford University in the mid 19th century. This sport has been played by men since 1900 and it was not until 2008 that women were allowed to participate in this sport. At the European Championship, this sport will be in two rounds and athletes will have to compete against one another to win the medal. Runners will have to jump through seven waters and 28 barriers during the duration of the race. For the women barrier, it is fixed at 30inch (equivalent to 72.6m).
