Nordic skiing is tough, 6 days a week practice, hours of hill work UP hill, intervals, plus all your equipment which easily exceeds $1000

Highest demanding sport in the world
Sorry, what stupid place is badminton, common now, it's the fastest sport in the world, a shuttle in a smash can go up to 493km/h, it's a verry demanding sport, just trie it out...V 2 Comments
Basketball requires high class aerobic and anaerobic fitness for an entire 40 minutes (or 48). On top of this, an athlete must be powerful throughout every major muscle group - it's not all lower body. Good luck trying not to sweat when playing a game of Basketball!
This has to be one of the most demanding sports! Non-stop movement up and down the floor with the only rest being on Timeouts or period breaks. On top of the running side of things, Basketball requires great Hand-eye coordination as well as Muscular Strengh, Muscular Endurance and Muscular Power. And to top it off you most certainly have to be Quick and be Agile. This deserves a higher rating!
Whoever made this list is poorly informed on fitness levels, speed, strength and coordination required. To lust foitball before basketball is absurd.V 1 Comment
In Volleyball you are always practicing. You have to do whatever it takes to get the ball. Go to a hard gym floor, jump in the air and belleyflop onto the floor. In volleyball season all good players have bumps and bruises on their arms, shins, legs, faces even. You have to stop a ball that is going 85Mph with whatever body part you can get to it. Everybody thinks volleyball isn't a sport, but you won't say that after a day in Practice.
Being a fairly good Bowler I can say that bowling is probably one of the most mentally demanding sports, it's not to physically demanding.
Throwing a 15 or 16 pound sphere 60 feet down a lane with accuracy under the stress of competition, hundreds of time in a day.
How people can put themselves through the pistons of running for hours on end, I don't know
Running through mountains distances ranging from 50k to 167k non stop night and day pushing your body and mind to its absolute maximum this should be in the top five,in my opinion a real sport is used by people who once use there body as the tool
The competition is at an incredibly high level, even in the younger expert level kids.
You may ride your bike or whatever but let's see you ride something that you have no control of and you better be dialed in mentally and physically or your might as well kiss your butt goodbye It is the toughest sport on dirt or anywhere for that matter
How is Bullriding not at least in the top 20? It's not only a demanding sport but it's also one of the most dangerous. Whoever made this list is an idiot.
I rode 14 years, air lifted twice and gathered more then 300 000 $ in med billsV 1 Comment
