Most Dangerous Sports

161 Camel Racing

Probably the most intense sport out there. One time my buddy was hosting a race with the locals and when he started the race the camels ran and wouldn't stop and he tried to run, but they caught up and he tripped and from this day on he can't make babies.

162 Underwater Hockey

When the whistle blew after 3 seconds everyone drowned.

163 Stepping

Once I took a step and someone tickled my pickle and I shat on his face and he drowned in it. So yeah don't play this sport only for people who can no drown in poo.

I highly advice not to play this sport.

165 Fishing

I did martial arts for more than 10 years but never broke a piece of bone and none of my friends died but I've lost more than 5 friends Rock fishing.

Rock fishing can be far more dangerous compare to any other sports.

You have got to be tough to go fishing.

Fishing is by far the most dangerous sport, for any of you who don't agree I suggest you go buy a rod and go rock fishing. Good luck

Yep dangerous

166 Competitive Eating

Have you ever gotten constipated from eating too much? I have! This should be number one! I can't even believe that no one thinks it is more dangerous than cheerleading. You could so easily die competitively eating. I bet it happens all the time and is just covered up.

You must watch food attack. It is about people who got into serious trouble with food. Like someone who ate junk food and couldn't breath.

Well yeah I mean it gets pretty hardcore when your trying to eat cows!

You might choke.

167 Ping Pong

The ceiling could collapse on table tennis players at any time, crushing them to death. There's also the ever-present danger of catching a life-threatening disease from the bat handles.

Without a doubt the most dangerous I broke my penis while trying to hit the ball.
You could also get in the eye with the ball if your not careful.

You can hit your hand on the edge of the table when swinging for the ball. Might leave a bruise for a day or two.

Not dangerous at all

168 Hot Air Ballooning

This is not in the top 20 because it is a very unpopular sport

While it's definitely not worthy of being in the top ten most dangerous, it's definitely more dangerous than ping pong. The danger isn't just from being "acendently pushed" [sic] or falling, as another poster said. There's also the danger from power lines, trees, unexpected high winds, fuel leaks, or just pilot error causing the balloon to drop from the sky. While fatalities don't happen frequently, they do happen. Just ask the families of the 19 people who died in a hot air balloon crash in Egypt this year.

If somebody acendently pushed you or fell of you could get really hurt or injurd so be carefull.

169 Baseball Baseball Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.

Thank you I play base ball and you could get killed if someone hit a line drive and hit you if your a pitcher or any position last year I got hit by a pitcher and he throws at least over 50 miles per hour stupid cheer leaders that's not even dangerous why is baseball way down here stupid volley ball that's not even dangerous thank you for reading this good bye again tell me that this is a very dangerous sport and it is so volley ball and cheer leading is so stupid and I play base ball I am a girl!

Baseball is physical. And for all the people out there that say "All you have to is hit a ball", your wrong. don't judge it until you play it. I'm a catcher which is the toughest position. My parents told me that it'd be too risky for my size. I thought I'd be fine. If a had a Penny for every time I gotten hit by a ball in the dirt, taken a foul tip, or even ran over, I'd be rich. And don't even talk about lacrosse. I mean I thought it was pretty cool until people started blabbing about how dangerous it is. I do admit it is dangerous, but that's what you get for trying to play a Native American sport. Why you toughen up and play an American American sport.

It is hard you can get hit in the chest and die plus you can break your ankle sliding you can break fingers break wrist pull muscles the other week I hurt my wrist and couldn't play my second game I couldn't even swing my batt you easily get hitt in the face if it's hit hard enough I play softball but I watch my brother play all the time and we are extremely aggresive on bases and hitting it's not as easy as you think I've gotten fallen on just last week when I was catching and we do play in till we can't we have cut knees cut elbows and we do run a lot we don't just stand there and wait for a ball at practices we run up big hills more then you would think we put do much effort into the game ya you could have only 2 practices a week or every day of the week and games all weekends you have no life depending on the team you put all you have into the game in till you break something seriosly it's intense

Nearly killed my coach the other day when hitting, I barely missed him

170 Swimming Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

Definitely a dangerous sport! My teammates have gotten concussions and stress fractures. Someone has hit their head on the diving board (who is actually a top state diver). I however have pulled muscles, strained my elbow and knee. Bruises from the side, other swimmers and lane ropes. Also, too much chlorine is bad for you. You can be sore for days after swimming for just 30 minutes! MORE VOTES!

Seriously this should be in the top ten! Half of my team including me has shoulder, knee, or hip injuries due to swimming. You can easily get a concussion by hitting your head on the wall and I have numerous scars and scratches from hitting the lane line. Someone on my team slipped on the pool deck and broke their wrist. Meet warmups are probably the most dangerous thing about swimming. Imagine 20+ kids all cramming into one lane all getting smacked and kicked in the face. Some kid broke my goggles once by kicking me in the face. Seriously I don't understand why this isn't higher on the list

I don't see how many of these are in front of swimming. I mean, eating! Really? I've seen so many knee/shoulder injuries, stress fractures, and broken bones in swimming, but I've never seen a serious cheerleading accident. Some people should try real swimming, it will change their mind about it, its extremely difficult and demanding.

I nearly broke my ankle doing a flip turn. My friend has nearly lost her shoulder due to it. Swimming is really fun but can be super painful

171 Tennis Tennis Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each.

How can tennis not be on here? Tennis is upper hard. You so called athletes called cheerleaders try run laps all day, then, hitting a ball for two hours. For tennis, you need really strong arms to hit a ball, and if you run to the corner really fast, you need to be able to stop so you don't sprain something. Most of you cheerleaders are the ones at school that wear hooker outfits and say stupid cheers. Your all skin and bones, I'm surprised you guys can lift the Pom poms, much less then a person! I love tennis

Tennis is not a dangerous sport at all. its just hitting a tennis ball until someone hits the ball out! You have to learn the sport and you don't need a really strong arm to be really good. if you run to the corner really fast you need to have the right stroke to get the ball in with balance. I've seen many people trying to hit topspin in that position in pros and they rarely fall. and you can't throw your racquet up I'm laughing... that only happens when you serve but rarely. and the racquet goes straight to the ground. so to sum it off, this sport is not at all dangerous.

You could throw your racquet up and it could hit someone.

I've gotten smashed in the eye multiple times with a tennis ball.

172 Sting Pong

I got hit by a ball and went to hospital and now I can't have children. My friend (Croney) got a broken leg from playing ping pong, weird but true.

Sting-pong is really fun and it hurts your back. if you turn around and get hit in the eye with a Ping-Pong ball you could lose your eye.

My friend died from sting pong... It was horrible. The shots can cause 3rd degree burns or more!

173 Sailing

I grew up playing many sports. I have the most injuries from sailing. Over the month of July, I counted eighteen sailing related injuries. I also have heard stories of people who have drowned and died, got concussed, thrown over board, or all of the above. I think sailing should be so much higher on the list. No one really understands that danger of it. I mean, I feel I have heard of more people dying because sailing then because of hockey.

Sailing is definitely one of the most dangerous sports. My High School sailing team lost one team mate when she drowned after an accident and I and many other team mates have suffered concussions. The professional sailors have had many injuries. Just this week (5/11/2013) a two time Olympic gold medalist sailor died training for the Americas Cup. So sailing should definitely be higher on the list.

I'm pretty sure more people have died sailing then any of the other things on the list. And sailing is in the olympics, unlike most of these other pansy-ass sports.

My friend does it

174 Bowling

You could also hurt your wrist if your not use to bowling or even if you know how to bowl and you turn your wrist the wrong way. You could also have shoulder problems if you have a high back swing. Anything could happen if your not careful.

You really hurt your knees a lot because when your getting up to the foul line and slide a lot of the time you could slide just a little bit wrong and it could totally screw up your knee. Once I could hardly walk for 2-3 weeks.

One could slip and injure themselves if they wander out onto the slippery part of the course not to mention how the heavy ball can wear down ones wrist.

Yes or no for this sport, studies show that
75% no
20% tryout another sport!
5% yes!

175 Lawn Bowling

As many elderly people generally play bowls it has one of the highest death rates; heart attacks are not uncommon in this sport whilst it is being played.

More people DIE when they are still playing bowls. At my club 6 people died this year, Eliot

176 Croquet

Maybe old people may find it hard

177 Cricket Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

You can tell this list was made in the USA. They are all girls' games above this one! Cricket is insane! They are allowed to throw a solid, hard, heavy ball at your head and body at over 100mph! And you have a piece of wood 4 inches wide in your hand to hit it with. Then when the ball is travelling at 150mph you have to try to catch it TEN FEET AWAY! NO head protection, gloves, just BALLS! Top sport in India, 700 million population. (i got a cricket ball on the head when I was 10 years old, knocked me out cold for half an hour)

Can cause even death if hit in some areas. No matter how much protection you take its still dangerous. There are some insane fast bowlers. This is one of the sports which you can't even think of playing without proper protection.

So many batsmen died playing cricket. Phil Hughes died after a ball hit him on the neck. Try standing at silly mid-off without a helmet you are risking your life. A umpire got hit on his bum and had to leave the field. One guy got a fractured skull!. And another got a hit nose and it was full of blood.

Because its cricket

178 Running Running

Heart attacks, strokes seizures, Passing out, Concussions from passing out and falling, DEATH you got it in running.

You just trip and get badly hurt.

You could trip and break your ankle

Go so fast, just might get hit by something.

179 Jumping Rope

I jump rope and have suffered multiple broken bones, twisted ankles, and sprained wrists. Jump rope combines the aspect of cheerleading and dance but then adds a rope that you constantly have to skip over the entire time. Competitions are brutal and last for hours. I've been on a professional jump rope team for 10 years and I have practice everyday, sometimes more than 8 hours in one day. The majority of you could never handle the physical strength that you need in order to jump rope. So learn about it before you bash it.

Jump rope combines gymnastics, dance, cheer, and soccer, when you are on a professional jump rope team that trains for over 10 hours a week like I do. If you haven't noticed, all of the previously mentioned sports are in the top 20. And in the last 2 years on my team, I have witnessed sprains, fractures, dislocations, broken bones, shin splints, and even bleeding. So jump rope should definitely be in the top 15 at least.

You can end up strangling your self

180 Beer Pong

Alcohol poisoning, duh. Plus, you can get serious carpel tunnel from throwing that super light ball the wrong way, gosh!

Are you kidding me... Its beer pong. if you can play the sport while hammered it has to be easy

Dude, I was so drunk I through the ball at the cup, it bounced back, hit me in the chest and I(since I was so hammered)felt like I got shot in the chest... That's how I died. Yeah... Think about that...

No you don't
