The competitors line up beside their beds... "On your mark... get set... g'night!" They jump into their beds and don their brainwave monitoring headbands, heartrate monitoring wristbands etc and tuck in for the night's competition as the lights turn off.

In the morning, sleep metrics are compared and the winner gets a golden teddy bear or something.

Though it would be the world's most boring spectator sport, sleep researchers might be interested to see what people come up with that could be applicable to the science of sleep disturbance and disorders therapy.

       The one sport in which drugs* are probably mandatory. [+]   

       A nice combination of CBD, a little THC, whisky, and a soft rubber mallet to the temporal lobe (to rock the hypothalamus to sleep)... you win!   

       *Benzodiazepines and other 'sleep' aids will be illegal, as they will kill you. No, seriously. Go ahead, try to wean yourself off them.

       The competition should be held in University halls of residence; that way, students who have lost the use of their lower limbs through prolonged lack of movemnent would be be to compete.

       Although the above listed drugs would no doubt help the participants, it would probably make this, not only the most boring sport to watch, but the most dangerous as well, so drug testing would be mandatory,   

       Otherwise this would become a "How many drugs can you survive?" competition.   

       Those are already pretty popular in most major cities.
