Amphibian ball is a brand new sport combining the best of football, water polo and Peruvian mud wrestling. Run like a cheetah — swim like a sea snake — clamber like a frog — in a thrilling hurricane of passion and guile.
Amphibian ball is played in a swimming pool filled with a suspension of cornflour in water. The suspended starch particles present players with a Non-Newtonian shear thickening fluid: under slow pressure, the suspension flows like a liquid; under impact, it stiffens like brittle rock. This allows a sprinting amphiballer, with his feet pounding the surface, to tear up and down the pool as though it were a beach. Conversely, stationary players will sink slowly. Through a kind of hybrid of swimming and crawling, others may steal into position. Watch out — the fluid’s opacity can help the cunning amphiballer to lurk like a crocodile, with only his nostrils visible, before suddenly rising up to score like a Leviathan-Pele.
