Not seen here is the ball court in which the Mayans played a unique form of soccer. The ball was played from the hip and thighs as opposed to using their feet. Games could last for days.

As their reward for winning, the victors were sacrificed to the gods.😲!

Although it was considered an honour, they were essentially killing their best athletes in favour of the genetically inferior losers... which might help explain why the Mayan empire went extinct.
