Underwater Grappling

This is not necessarily a new idea for a sport and was participated in by myself and my buddies around 10 years ago. This is an attempt at a revival.

The idea is simple. Two opponents stand on opposing sides or adjacent edges of a plunge pool (deep end). A third person (acting as judge/referee) throws an item (anything heavier than water and non-sharp) into the pool midway between the opponents. On a signal, the opponents dive in and race for the item. First to raise the item above the surface of the water in their hand wins the round. No punching is allowed to the face, throat or groin. No eye gouging. No nastiness in general, this is supposed to be fun. Anything else goes, wrestling, dead legs, etc.
