Any historical sports with instant-win moves?

Not only does boxing currently have the ten-second KO rule and the ancillary TKO rule (in which a referee can stop a fight at any time if it looks like the consequences of keeping the fight going are greater than charging a guy a loss - this happens when a fighter is "out on his feet" but also, for instance, when he's cut over one of his eyes and can't see the punches coming in) but its pre-Marquis of Queensbury origins generally had fights run as follows:

The boxers would fight until one of them was knocked down. This ended a "round" of boxing. As you might imagine, they often lasted longer than 3 minutes. The boxers were given some short amount of time to get themselves ready to go. Nowadays the time between rounds is 60 seconds, to give you some idea of how long a recently knocked-down fighter might have. By some period of time, both fighters would have to meet each other in the center of the fighting arena at a line scratched out in the dirt. If one of the fighters was...

I don't think you'll find any explicit historical events or conditions that led to the absence of ties (mostly) in U.S. sports. I think it's just a product of the sports fans' sentiments that frown upon ties and draws. For most sports, it's not incredibly difficult to "untie" the game either. Since baseball is one of the most influential games in American sports history, I have a feeling that sentiment would be a little different if draws were used in the early days of play instead of extra innings.

The common perception in American is that ties are a waste of time and pointless. People like things black or white, good or bad, won or lost--ties are a shade of gray that's not very exciting, and excitement is one of the aims of sporting events. Each game is billed as a contest to determine the better team and American fans don't like inconclusive results. A lot of people see it this way--why play 2 or 3 hours to a tie when the result is basically the same as if the game was...

In Civilization, you can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat (and your rivals) simply by accomplishing a victory condition - any victory condition - before they do. Enemy at the gates? Get that ship to Alpha Centauri and you win. Another Civ about to colonize the stars? Stomp him flat and conquer the globe. Diplomatic and cultural victories are also possible in the later games, allowing even Civs with weak militaries and backwards technological development to come out ahead of their competition. Alpha Centauri also included an economic victory by cornering the global energy market.

Civ IV's cultural victory conditions are a great example of this trope. A strong alliance can burn all but three of your cities to flames (and be about to take care of the last three), but if you can reach "Legendary" culture levels in those three cities, instant win.

It can get even more absurd, but not less fun, in the mod Rhye's and Fall of Civilization, which focuses on accomplishing...
