This is a case where, since the lines you draw around what is or isn't a "valid" sport (since the quiz is "name a valid sport") is highly material to the answers and has to have an objective definition. I'd suggest referring to some standard list(s) or subsets of them that you refer to in the description (like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sports).

Could you accept sumo or sumo wrestling for the question about the de jure national sport of an Asian country?

I thought the same thing, but apparently it’s not the national sport by law. Just de facto.

Don't get the "strength sport" question. In what way is weightlifting more of a "strength sport" than most of the events that make up athletics?
+1
Level 63

Strength sports usually comprise of sports that use sheer body power eg Weightlifting, powelifting.

This definition needs to be tightened up--that is, you need to refer to an authority which classifies sports this way, otherwise it's just your opinion what constitutes "sheer body power," whatever that even means. Hammer throw and shot put certainly seem to me to "use sheer body power".

Bandy is a sport which definitely fits the criteria "That uses a Stick(not a bat) and a Ball"

Granted, it's very obscure outside of a few countries... but I don't see that being mentioned as a reason for exclusion ;)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandy

While we're on that subject, I feel that Ice Hockey does not fit that same criteria. A puck is most definitely not the same thing as a ball.

This is a great concept for a quiz! It would be better if it were clear from the outset what a "valid" sport is, and a couple of the open-ended questions need to have better answer lists or the question needs to be clarified:

"In which the United States has Never won an Olympic Medal"; the question should clarify that it is an Olympic sport in which the US has never won a medal.

"That Is a Fictional Sport"; there's no way you can keep on top of all "valid" fictional sports; just off the top of my head there's Podracing, Blernsball, Bloodbowl, Chocobo Racing, Anbo-jutsu and other stuff played on Star Trek's holodeck, and those are just obvious ones from very popular media. How many fantasy and science fiction books contain one-off sports, etc.? So this is another question where you need to restrict the scope to something manageable and refer to some kind of standard list or criteria.
