41 Skiing

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

All big muscles are used to its maximum in skiing competition, and I'm not talking about downhill here..

42 Badminton Badminton Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock across a net. Although it may be played with larger teams, the most common forms of the game are "singles" and "doubles".

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...

43 Basketball Basketball Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard at each end.

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.

46 Volleyball Volleyball Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.

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.

47 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.

48 Tug of War
49 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

50 BMX Racing

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

51 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

57 Beach Volleyball

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

58 Gaelic Football V 1 Comment
59 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.
