Most Dangerous Sports

81 Street Luge

When you try too poop it ends up in your throuat and then it makes you eat it

82 Road Racing

Real road racing. That's racing motorcycles at speeds of over 200mph on temporarily closed public roads. No run off, gravel traps or safety nets.

Look at all of the deaths at Watkins Glen and Le Mans Road Racing IS one of the most dangerous sports in the world.

Road racing is quite dangerous in the 1955 le mans a car flew into the grandstands and killed 80 people

I can't believe where road racing come on this list.

83 Bodyboarding

Not only can you charge waves up to twenty feet but if that wave crashes on you you can easily drown or get cut on a reef many bodyboarders and surfers have died from that type of injury plus the risk of other dangerous marine life

84 Freestyle Scootering

Much more dangerous than doggy style. The skid marks are not uniform leading to many injuries depending on the types of furniture.

I cen feestyle the way to grandmas and she was disapointed in the scooter cause of the choice of indonesion styling

85 AFL Football

One time I was going to kick the soccer ball into the goals but a couple of afl players came up to me pined me down and shat on me so yeah very dangerous sport.

Someone tell me how soccer is above this when all the do in soccer is flop to the floor and in american football they might as well be wearing body armour

John Cena

Almost every match, someone is injured. You only have to look back at the last match played. Swans vs kangas drew Petrie vs rowan...

86 Track and Field

In Track and Field, there can be many injuries and casualties. While running you can pull muscles, tendons, ligaments and many other things. The most common injury for running is shin splints. Some shin splints can take five months or more. I've seen many people tripping on hurdles and breaking their legs or arms. On the other hand, for field events, you can die from pole vaulting, and javelin. Ashton Eaton's wife nearly kill Ashton while practicing with a javelin.

How the heck is netball a noncontact sport in front of track and field the only reason you get hurt in netball is because you get into a randon fight with someone in track and field you actually throw a sharp disc (discus) and spear (javelin) and if someone steps on your foot with spikes have fun getting surgery in your arteries!

I've gotten 2 ankle surgerys because of doing track and field. And I still love it. Sure a lot of people think all you do is run but you do way more than that. You learn how to be a team and how to push your self. So many kids pull muscles, break bones, tear legament, or other serious injuries.

Once I was going over the jump things and I smashed my face and had to get 40 stitches on my head

90 Skeleton

Imagine luge. You're pelting down a very slick, curvy, and narrow track at 90 miles an hour. One small movement and you're flipped off the sled. Just 2010 a luger died before the Vancouver Olympics.
Now imagine doing it with your face down and forward, an inch form the ice.
There you go. Skeleton. Look it up if you're not already scared.

All you have to do is look up videos and you realize this should jump to at least top 25

How is this not any higher!
Skeleton is a very dangerous sport and also TERRIFYING!
The speed you are going at with only a helmet to protect you is enough to make me wonder why this is so low.

91 Sumo Wrestling

This is a sport of fat people in diapers pushing each other until one falls out of the wring so this is not dangerous

One time I went to japan to look at fat people, what instead I found 2 sweaty Mexican men fighting each other in someones backyard.

92 Paragliding

It's obvious why this is a dangerous sport I mean if something happens to you're wings you may fall and die but it's still fun.

Soaring the ridge, landing in a 50ft tree and falling off...

Thermalling 5000ft high, performing acrobatic maneuvers, get tangled in the lines and fall to the ground like a stone, if not lucky enough to pull a reserve...

93 Trap Shooting

Trap shooting is not dangerous at all. All the people emphasize is gun safety. On the trap line there is no way that the gun will be pointed in an unsafe direction nor dangerous to any human being. It will be pointed down range and only one shell goes in the gun at a time so no accidental mis fires

Its not that dangerous unless if your drunk

This should be way higher

94 Motorcycle Racing

This sport should be in the top 10 motocross is the hardest sport going have fun hoping on a 450cc see how you go I have seen good motocross rider go from motorbike to a wheelchair from one little mistake you only need one little mistake to crash and when you crash on a heavy motorbike you aunt going to stand up with no injury the ground is solid and go have a look how fast motocross riders are going and you got to be fit to even hold on to a motorbike this sport is a scary sport

You guys need to put this sport on top 20 go look up motocross crashes and how they train and you will re think were this sport should be in the top 20 or this page is a little bit fake please take your time to look in motocross and how hard and scary this sport is top 94 that's ball.

You almost loose your life about 10 times a race and once you crash you go down hard you at least break a bone if your unlucky your neck

97 TT Racing

Having raced on the Island in 1963 and '64 as a sidecar passenger I can tell you that passing stone walls while leaning out of the sidecar to maintain stability with your head within a foot of a wall at well over 100 miles per hour is quite exhillerating and quite dangerous. The fatality rate is nasty but no-one races unless they accept the risks. Racing on the mainland race tracks doesn't even begin to compare with the Isla of Man's Mountain Circuit for danger. I'd have to vote it the world's most dangerous sport.

No doubt about it, the event lasts 2 weeks a year and every year there are at least 4-5 killed. One year there was 13 deaths. Top speeds reaching 200mph on public roads with no run off area just manx brick walls. Awesome to watch!

Most people that have used this site have no idea from the what I read. TT racing should be number 1 & most motorcycle sports should fill the next few spots. It's just a joke to read the list on this site on this date 14/2/2014.

DANGEROUS very dangerous I would pee myself doing this

98 Antarctic Racing (Sailing)

Sailing is a very dangerous sport. If you capsized or turtle the boat you are putting you and your crew in danger. You or your crew could get stuck under the sail and not be able to breahte. My best friend got stuck on the trapeze and almost drowned because she couldn't realease the clip. There are many things that could go wrong on the boat. MY friend's dad did a roll gybe to get ahead of this other sailor in a race and got a huge black eye becuase he got hit by the boom in 20mph of wind. He was so lucky not to loose his eye. I also got hurt sailing because I did a roll gybe and slipped and fell on my tailbone. It has been more than a month and I am still not fully recovered.

This is a dangerous sport and the cold unbearable! You may lose toes fingers and freeze the sails get extremely hard to control and beware of blizzards

Only half of the participants who cross the starting line are able to cross the finish line.

Sailing is a rewarding but dangerous sport.

99 Speed Boat Racing

This has been proved more dangerous than flying. So many things could go wrong! Drowning, broken neck from whacking your head on the boom, and just this week legendary sailor Andrew Simpson, who won 3 olympic medals dies in training. This is so dangerous, yet addictive.

At the highest level I think its like super powered drag boat racing, I saw on T.V. that 1 in 8 people who do it die so try get more dangerous then that

I can't believe this sport is so far down the list. The # of fatalities is off the chart.

100 Rowing

I'm not sure how to put this but rowing is one of the most dangerous sports I've ever participated in along my long sporting career, with such intensity that it is unusual to not see people vomiting after a race. The blood, pain, blisters, constant muscle aches! Without doubt this sport should be much higher on this list because it... unlike other positions above this really deserves a higher position!

Rowing is actually really dangerous! I've seen people get hit really hard in the head from catching crabs, sometimes even getting knocked unconscious or pushed out of the boat. Not to mention the fact that you're putting every joule of energy you have into every single stroke, in some races for up to 10 minutes on end, kilometre after kilometre until you puke. And there's also what happens if you fall out, and you're feet get stuck. That's a really horrible way to die. Rowing should be higher up the list than this, because it really is one of the most dangerous sports out there.

Apart from you hands being ripped apart with no chance to heal due to training sessions several times a week there is also the whole falling in aspect.
If you capsize and manage not to drown, there are high chances of catching diseases from the water (the number of times I've seen a dead creature floating along the water...) and you could easily have gained injuries on your way in.
Then there are the collisions, I know several fellow rowers who have suffered from concussion after colliding with another boat and being smacked across the head with an expensive and very hard blade/oar.
Scullers can say goodbye to their right hand and I'm sure all rowers will have experienced the wonders of blisters at their best. Try not to get caught in a lightning storm though, metal attracts lightening and gues what?! Whoopty doo, were stuck in a boat covered in Metal and surrounded by water, which also attracts lightning.

Competitive cheerleading? Give me a break!
