Best Answer

The oldest sport ever created is unknown, but the oldest sport ever recorded was boxing. The Epic of Gilgamesh gives one of the first historical records of sport with Gilgamesh engaging in a form of belt Wrestling with Enkidu. It has also been traced back to ancient Sumer. Another theory was running was the first sport ever played as well, but there is no clear evidence for either of these theories.
