WATCH: You don't want to miss this incredible sport at the Paralympics
Goalball is sure to entertain at this year's games
The 2016 Rio Paralympics kick off on Wednesday night with the opening ceremony, so that means it's time to take a closer look at some of the sports that you may not be that familiar with.
In addition to swimming, track and field, and wheelchair basketball, athletes will also play a unique sport called goalball. It's a sport for athletes with visual impairment that sort of combines soccer and bowling.
The athletes wear eye masks to ensure a level playing field, and take turns bouncing or rolling a ball containing two bells towards the opposing goal. Players even use spins and fakes to try to throw off the other team.
Pretty cool stuff.
Goalball has been an official Paralympic sport since 1980, with Finland (men) and Japan (women) taking home gold medals at the 2012 London Games.
The U.S. women won the 2014 World Championship thanks to tournament MVP Asya Miller, and are looking for gold in Rio de Janeiro.
The Paralympics run from Sept. 7-18, and you can see the full schedule here.
