The Contenders: Page 6

101 Parkour

This should be higher up, you could DIE

Not really a sport but it would be right behind gymnastics

102 Gaelic Football

Gaelic football is definitely a tough sport but then again I wouldn't say it's the hardest sport ever.

I play this sport...I have seen some really bad injuries, and I caused quite a lot of them!

105 Bouldering

Bouldering is one of the hardest sports in the world I train since 10 years and I am only 15 if you go into a gym an climb up a wall with all the holds... Good for you but that's not bouldering ;) you need to have power you must be flexible and you really must think about what you do!

Bouldering is frking hard. And I'm a gymnast. My brother does it and I think this should be from 5-3

106 Kitesurfing

One of the best and kinda hard. Sport

107 Snow Fights

If you can imagine the sprinting of football but the elusiveness of dodgeball, mixed with the occasional freezing snow that gets slammed right in the face, it's got to be the hardest out there, not to mention th countless ours of training

Snow fights is the hardest sport I've ever played, I'm serious

Has anyone done gymnastics before?

108 Drop Ball
109 Cyclocross

Physically demanding. It doesn't sound much but once you actually give it a go you'll realize it's almost impossible to do. The biking through mud, sand, grass or gravel with challenging decents and steep inclines. Doing that between 6 and 10 times over really kills you, and then on top of that its twice a weekend through all off December and January and the majority of November and February with racing also happening in October. It might not be long but its physically more demanding than any sports I can imagine. Also including staircases, jumps and forced running sections just to make it more fun. A lot more difficult than anything in the top ten, gymnastics and hockey are hard, I understand, but they don't compare with cycling or other endurance sports like running

111 Wakeboarding
112 High Jump

Well how about trying to jump a wider taller jump on a horse

I love love love love love this sports

Tough, very tough training regime. Most will never know how high you needvto trsin to get high.

113 Competitive Jumproping

This is something that many people don't even think exists. BUT IT DOES it is one of the hardest sports you can ever do. It takes LOTS of endurance to jump for a long period of time, and it takes great muscle in your legs. I hope that the word gets spread about this sport because it is very important

But going up and down many times will later never seem to get any harder. Swimming does.

114 Footbag

Trying to kick a sack of rocks into a small hole is very hard. you use so much energy and go through so much pain, its probably the hardest sport ever.

115 Jousting

Imagine how hard it would be just to get on the hoarse with all that armor and that long heavy wooden stick. Plus it would be hard for you to even get the urge to play the game with the amount of casualties and deaths from this sport.

I would say jousting is one of the most dangerous, and body enduring sports there are

116 Billiards

It takes the most amount of consistency to not miss a ball and get perfect shape 100% of the time.

117 Sepak Takraw

This sport is probably a very hard sport to learn. A reason why is because it includes everything but your arms. Easiest way to put it is that it's like playing soccer with a volley ball net but doing jump spinning kicks to knock a small bamboo or plastic ball down to the opponents side (like in volley ball). It requires a lot of coordination with your feet since you're using it most of the time. It also requires a lot of skill to jump and spike the ball over the net with your foot. I say that it's a hard sport to play and master, but I don't think it would be the most difficult sport in the world. Tell me more info if you have any about this sport. It's also mostly played in Southeast Asia.

118 Pickleball

Because a sport named after a dog deserves to be number one

I love pickleball! - foxandwolf

119 Mixed Martial Arts Mixed Martial Arts Mixed martial arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts.
120 Roller Skating
