Most Painful Sports


The Top Ten

1 American Football

Tackling each other player is one of the most dangerous sport by getting bone crack and the bone is getting smash in every part of the body

2 Rugby

I play rugby and I have had bleeding noses and have been winded loads of times so ye it should be voted the most painful

Ruby is very dangerous but I think compotion cheer should be on the list

3 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

People have died playing hockey! There is no sport more dangerous than hockey - pryan96

4 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.
5 Paintball


6 Rowing

Based on the other sports on this list it isn't even a question; rowing is not only complete hell while actually racing, but even more so in the months to years of practice to get in shape to even be able to race. Your entire body is on fire and aching. Legs turn to lead and arms become numb, not to mention the mental strength needed to be able to keep going and not give up

Rowing causes an unimaginable amount of pain throughout one's entire body. During a race you go into a tunnel of hurt in which the only way to get out is to push yourself even harder. You loose your senses as the body helps you to prioritise which muscles to give its energy to. It' a sport in which you must feel on the brink of collapse when you cross the line in order to have done it right.

You have not felt pain until you have done a 2k test

Rowing is obviously the most painful sport. Rowing tears every muscle in your body and bits tremendous strain on the legs, arms, and back. The water is pushing with great force against the blade which tears huge chunks of skin out of your hands. Seriously, google 'rowing blisters' it's actually terrifying. You have never experienced true pain until you row a 2k on an erg.

7 Cross Country Track

Who wants to finish a 5k... But fast... Over insane terrain... Crazy conditions?

Cross country is a killer 😵😫

The Contenders

11 Airsoft
12 Boxing Boxing Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..

This is a very bloody sport I can't believe it isn't number 1.

Imagine getting punched in the face... - KingSlayer93316

13 Gymnastics Gymnastics Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring strength, flexibility, balance and control.

I do gymnastics and I am only 11 and I have got several injuries like at least 20 and I am only in level 4 and I have already torn a back muscle when I was in level 2 so I think gymnastics should at least be in the top ten. Plus I gotten many at least 100 rips in my hand through the years of gym.

I'm a gymnast and I know gymnastics is the hardest because you have to bend stretch and sometimes bleed from bar and you also don't want to get hurt

Try splitting the beam ripping your hands every day at least an hour of conditioning (which is cardio to)😵 then flexibility for another 30 minits I that's painful and you have to do it every day

Ripping your hands
Splitting the beam
2 hours of conditioning
2 hour of stretching
Flying through the air and anything could go wrong at any moment

14 Competitive Dance

You do NOT understand the pain! Bleeding from your toes becomes routine. And if you do not think it's a sport you're right. It's like a sport only harder. So boom.

Try putting all of your body weight onto two big toes (pointe) and you'll know the pain, also it's really easy to get stress fractures in dance, I would know.

15 Horseracing
16 Biking

Just watch the climbs on The Tour. The winners can take the most pain.

A constant 3-5 hour effort puts you through the most suffering ever.

17 Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.
18 Lacrosse Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.

I play football lacrosse basketball and baseball and lacrosse is definitely the worst as far as pain because u can truck people whenever u want the play never ends and u can poke check and so many other things that hurt pretty bad

I’ve played box lacrosse my whole life it’s different than regular lacrosse in the way that everyone is a little more violent than lots of other sports. We can hit way more and get into fights often. Along with the fact most players can shoot 70+ mph with a heavy rubber ball I’ve seen 4 times in one season of people getting hit in the throat by shots most of them went for a quick water break and went back in. I’ve once got hit by a shot right on my chest and ever since then if I sit in a strange position to long my ribs start to hurt. In just 28 years 23 people have died in this sport.

19 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.
20 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.
