Fencing is one of the greatest sports I have ever played. The glorious combination of Tactics, Patience, Speed, and Footwork is put to work in this sport. Fencing is extremely underrated mainly because is is expensive, but otherwise it is the most enjoyable sport I have been a part of.

the coolist sport ever and surprisingly one of the most tiring

Although fencing requires lots of physical and mental patience, as a fencer myself I can say it is the best sport - Clayttles

Great back and forth sport that is very interesting to watch. I don't know why circus sports such as juggling and unicycle hockey are higher than this.

I know it's practically the same as baseball, but it's not because there are many different pitches and the pitches can be fast and really hurt when the ball hits you. I think it's a great sport because I played tee- ball
In kindergarten and worked my way up until now. Today My team won championship. Since softballs are bigger it doesn't mean they are easier to hit. You have to work on getting your sliding right, and baseball players don't slide, they dive to the base.

Softball should be number one have you ever of if it was easy everybody would well that's what makes softball number one in its quality

I think it should be in at least the top 5 I mean every girl I meet plays softball softball is fun and nice to get out there and feel free I love it I mean I said five but if not that top 10

My dad plays softball

84Horseback Riding

WHY ISN'T HORSEBACK RIDING TOP 20?! I've been riding since 3rd grade and loved it. This is the hardest sport of all. You need will, patience, LOTS of leg strength, and MORE! You're basically getting a gigantic animal to submit to you, and carry you on. For those that say that this isn't a hard sport, try galloping towards a three-foot tall post with just your feet keeping you on a huge prey animal! You also need to be able to multitask double-time, posting, managing reigns, looking to see where you're going, listening to coach's directions, making sure reigns are at correct length. Also, you need a lot of leg strength to do this sport well, like posting, for example, is extremely tiring. Sure, the horse is doing lots of work, but so are YOU. Why isn't this sport popular, I'll never know. It's truly amazing to watch, and much more experience for yourself. Most people are scared only because of the costs associated (half-chaps, paddock boots, helmet, breeches, gloves, etc.) Please PLAY ...more

HOW IS THIS NUMBER 82! Horse back riding is the best sport on earth. Riding is behind. Speed walking. WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. horse back riding lets you be free especially when your jumping. I don't know what sport you people play but I ride horses and trust me it is the best. I love it so will you

I think horseback ridding is really fun! It can make you feel tall, I really love that feeling!

Its not a hobby. Not a sport, It's A LIFESTYLE

Sailing is so underrated! No one understands how much hard work is involved in RACING. Look up 'Sailing Shack' on YouTube to see what sailing is really like.

Being out on the water is an amazing feeling. Feeling the boat power up and the spray washing over you. Its just awesome.

97Pole Vaulting

Pure athletic ability. Lower body, upper body, speed, strength, balance, coordination, technique, and courage. The only thing better is gymnastics but that is not as fun!

98Synchronized Swimming

This is by far the greatest sport. It's hard, requires endurance, grace, flexibility, memory, strength and you have to practice a lot. It is an olympic sport, which a lot of the sports above it aren't. It is both sharp and precise and graceful. Please vote for it.

I do synchronized swimming myself. It makes no sense that it is so low on this list - pez
