easy sports quiz questions and answers

I would describe myself as a boy’s boy. I grew up playing athletics, cricket, football, rugby. Basically, any type of sport I could get involved in, I would.

Even though I don’t play as much as I used to, I am still completely obsessed with all sports. The first thing I do each morning is check the sports news, and whenever there’s a game of anything on TV, even if it’s something like indoor bowls, I can’t help watching it.

I know I’m describing the typical bloke here, so I thought it’d be fun coming up with some easy sports quiz questions and answers to test you with. These are the type of questions you should know off the top of your head without having to look up the answers. That’s the hope anyway!
