oină

“Oină: traditional Romanian sport Existing since the Middle Age,
Its name was created by shepherds ...

Oină is a traditional Romanian sport Claimed as the ancestor of baseball Or even Russian lapta …

Oină is played with ones bare hands
And a leather ball Filled with horse, cattle or pig hair
As well as a wooden stick.
After its period of glory
This traditional sport has lost some of its primacy
Faced with tough competitors
Like football and boxing
But who knows what the future holds…”


« Oină : sport traditionnel Roumain

Apparu au Moyen Âge,
Son nom fut créé par les bergers…

L’Oină est un sport traditionnel Roumain
Revendiqué comme l’ancêtre du baseball
Ou encore de la lapta russe…

L’Oină se joue à main nue
Avec une balle en cuir
Remplie de poils de cheval, de bovins ou de porc
Ainsi qu’un bâton de frappe en bois.

Après une période de gloire
Ce sport traditionnel a un peu perdu de sa primauté
Face à de rudes concurrents
Comme le football et la boxe

Mais qui sait ce que l’avenir lui réserve… »
