Great one Curly, even though I'm a real sports buff I had to think long and hard about this one. Unfortunately I didn't get the most obvious one because my fourth one was hammer throw (they kinda swing around backwards - ok so I'm clutching at straws here ;)

I was thinking rugby league/union. Passes have to be thrown backwards in order to move the ball forwards.

Not sure if these are classified as sports but any competitive dart game (i.e. 301, 501, 701) starts at the top and counts to zero. Also demolition derby, the cars have to be driven backwards so to preserve the radiator from damage. Good teaser though!!

In checkers, or chess, one is allowed to move backwards. But then, this allows a whole lot of games in, doesn't it?

it was good, but there is more than 4 sports that could be used in this.
Except chess and checkers wouldn't work for they are not a sport.

In hockey you have to skate backwards in the defensive area. So that could work too!

If my handicap in golf goes backwards far enough I might be in with a chance!

How about the pole vault? They go over the top backwards, I think.
Good teaser!

Football...a quarterback has to move backwards before he makes a pass.

Going backwards ISN'T required in the high jump. You can do it straddle style, in which you go over forewards.

How about the shot putt...backward steps followed by a twist?

What about Gymnastics or Diving?!

Or the BACKWARDS 100 METER DASH...

When I high jump, I just run and basically hurdle it the first few heights (up to the point where I can't anymore). So it is possible to "win" that way, although I haven't ever.
