41 Skateboarding Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.

There's so much technicalities and the way you have to have everything perfect or you are going to fall hard. You have to have balance, consistency, board control and a big set of balls.

You can never master skateboarding because the amount of skills, tricks and spots are endless.. There is so much more to it than standing, pushingaand jumping. People think skateboarding is simple. Its about timing, skill, balance, consistency and skateboarding is so techniqual. You need a big set of balls to skate, big gaps, leaps and just facing fears is huge. Skateboarding should be in such a better place than 25th.

Half pipe skating use almost every muscle in your body. Airobically equal to boxing. 5 minutes of half pipe skateboarding equal to 2 full games of rugby league.

42 Synchronized Swimming

Go do your sport and take out the breathing part. Go do handstands on the bottom of the pool then try to hold yourself up, while upside down, not touching the bottom- at all. Ever. Good luck.

You just take 1 look at this sport and then decide where it should be on this board go on google it! Then come back and vote!

43 Motorcycle Racing

Half an hour of motor cross equal to playing 10 games of football back to back. A days motor cross 4 races at 25 minutes per race equal to a day of Tour de France bicycle race.

No one realises how physically demanding motocross is untill they try it, not only do you need to be fit, you need to be bike fit, something that's is completely diffrent to just regular fitness

44 Handball
45 Biathlon
46 Rock Climbing

Climbing trad at the top of your ability is hard.

To fight gravity you need a long way to go.

Very few people that do it at the highest level. Check out Alex Honnold and prepare to be terrified and exhausted.

47 BMX Racing

The competition is at an incredibly high level, even in the younger expert level kids.

48 Olympic Weightlifting
49 Water Ski Racing
50 Bowling

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.

51 Beach Volleyball Beach Volleyball Beach volleyball is a team sport played by two teams of two players on a sand court divided by a net. It has been an Olympic discipline since the 1996 Games.

Volleyball is a very physical demanding sport and it should at least be in the top 10

52 Archery Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus. V 1 Comment
53 Tug of War
54 Ultra Marathon

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

55 Kitesurfing

This sport should be number one on the list. The top riders can do wakeboard tricks better than wakeboards with just the wind and not even a kicker and at the same time it’s an extreme sport where riders like Josh Emanuel chase storms and jump 30 meters high. At the same time you can surf bigger waves than surfer would dream about without a jetski assisting them. And go check out Nick Jacobsen’s burj al arab 200 meter drop and his 277 meter tow-up.

56 Kickboxing

This is a physical and mental demanding sport that should be well up this list

57 Judo

50th, I have done Judo for 20 years and I have done Motocross, the 2 most physical sports in the world, so Motocross is 1st and Judo comes a very close second.

58 Bull Riding

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 bills

59 Strongman

You have got to be kidding me that strongman is this low. Dart beats it? Really? I dare anyone to see how much effort it takes to become elite at strongman

The only sport to test every aspect of strength, speed, stamina and mental toughness
