Yes, there are other popular sports in Cameroon besides football/soccer. Being home to the second highest mountain in Africa, Mount Cameroon, means hundreds of runners come to climb in the Mount Cameroon Race of Hope every year. Basketball, wrestling and canoe-racing are all popular.
But football/soccer is still the most popular across the country. They made it to the World Cup for the first time 1982. Cameroon’s national team won 4 African Cup of Nations finals and they won the gold medal in the 2000 summer Olympics.
