The Top Ten
1 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players each. It is played with a spherical ball. The objective is to score the ball in the other teams goal.

Football(soccer) is definitely the sport with the least fickle fans, and that is because it is the most competitive sport in the world which means fans get to see their teams exposed in at least 5 matches a year. Every fan gets to see his or her team take at least 3 damning losses a year.

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

To me I thinks its fun but hard because not everyone can hit a 90mph fastball nor stop a 200mph grounder


Why is swimming even refered as a sport?. Someone once said "Win if you can, lose if you must, but never quit." Well lets be honest with our selves I you lose your just going to keep on losing since like no one does competitive swimming which means you will be "racing"b the same exact people therfor you'll keep on whats the point Swimming is just a way from keeping from drowning. But baseball is...
1. More competitive

Holdup alberts number 1 in so I'm going to take a brake. Anyway swimming is not a sport, baseball is better and america#1

6 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.

I think swimming is a very hard sport because the athlete needs to have strength,endurance and the mental capacity to succeed. I myself am a swimmer and I know how hard but fun it really is!

Racing against others gets adrenaline pumping around your whole body. It pushes your body to its limit. It's the same feeling with running/sprinting too.

Every millisecond counts, still easy?

Most gruelling in terms of training.

The Contenders
11 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship more.

This sport is so competitive

This sport is super competitive. for all the events for horseback riding. there is jumpers,hunters,cross country, dressage, and many more. horseback riding can be very competitive. one because it's just you and your horse most of the other sports are teams. two there can be up to 100 people in one class. and the if you get high up into riding your win money if u win the whole class. I believe that horseback riding should not be 12 it should be much higher on the list. most people done understand how much competition and competitive people can be, especially jockeys and race horses. they get fast speeds and are super close to eachother as their racing that event most people bet on what horse will win or will either come in first second or third

14 Competitive Dance

I seriously can't believe I haven't found dance on any list not to mention COMPETITIVE dance and not to mention competing is exactly what you do. It is not only a super hard sport but it is very competitive. You watch hundreds of teams go before you until it is your turn to take the stage. One wrong move and a point or multiple is docked. You’ve been working for multiple months not only perfecting the dance, but your technique, facials, smoothness, flexibility and so mich more. It is expecially harder if you’re competing with a team since you have to make sure you are all correctly timed. Although people have said this multiple times, I still feel that this sport is looked down towards. There are so many different styles and types of moves. It can take years just to perfect a certain move not to mention preforming them. I really recommend you go on YouTube and just watch a dance. (Expressions And Mather dance company are very good ones). When you watch these dances look at how ...more

22 Marching Band

Marching band is a sport. A sport is defined as “an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of competitive nature.” Marching band is one of the most physically/mentally exhausting and competitive sports I can think of.

Marching band is in many leagues, just like any other sport. We’re in college leagues, high school leagues, and a national major league association.

We also have many physical stretches and warmups that we do before practice/show. From my personal experience, the warmups and physical activity we do during the show have made me and many others more fit.

During all of this, marchers hold up to 20-40 pound instruments while running/marching across a football field to keep time. You must also play your music correctly, which requires more physical warmups.

While you’re performing in the marching band, you always have around 5 judges watching your every move, scoring you on your performance. You have to memorize ...more
