Word of the week #17: 橄欖球

I was caught some of the Rugby Sevens World Series on TV over the weekend. The tournament was in Las Vegas. The word for rugby is 橄欖球. The name for the game is based on the description for the ball. 橄欖 is the word for olive. So, rugby is a game played with an olive-shaped ball.
