On Wednesday March 8, the QS World University Rankings by Subject will feature a ranking of the top 100 universities for sports-related subjects for the first time ever.
It means that, after years in the academic wilderness, anyone studying sports sciences, sports studies, kinesiology, sports psychology or sports management will finally be able to brag about how good their uni is to the rest of the world.
Given how much anyone on one of those courses must love sports, we're expecting some wild scenes of celebration on Wednesday, especially at the universities lucky enough to make the top 10. So, no pressure sports students of the world: this needs to be big. If there aren't backflips, salt baes and dabs happening at 100 different universities on Wednesday then we're going to be very, very disappointed.
Not sure how you'll mark the occasion? Don't worry, here are a few celebration ideas to get you started.
Pros: Relatively easy to do, inspires people to join in if done correctly
Cons: Does require you to be surrounded by cheerleaders, people might just think you're doing star jumps
The prize fish
Pros: Have you seen it? It's hilarious
Cons: You don't want to be the one flopping around on the floor
Pros: All you have to do is run and scream, it's not difficult
Cons: It's terrifying, someone will definitely call campus security on you
Pros: It's the only celebration you can do while sneezing
Cons: Even your parents have probably dabbed by now, it's not original
The secret handshake dab
Pros: It's the dab, but more awesome
Cons: I guarantee one of you will forget how the secret handshake goes
Pros: It's the new dab, ideal if you've got some food that needs seasoning
Cons: People that don't know what it is will be really, really confused
The double backflip
Pros: Technically more impressive than just doing one backflip
Cons: Technically more difficult than just doing one backflip
Whatever this is
On second thoughts...don't do that.
