42 Dance

What!?! Dancing should be first on this list! It's the hardest sport (especially ballet! ) I'm glad it is here though! Dancing involves major passion and motivation! It's the best feeling and way to express yourself! I love dancing! It's the best sport ever! And should definitely beat some of the other sports! Dancers!

Dance takes not just strength but also grace. Not many sports can say that they look stunning and gorgeous while they are playing the biggest game of their life.

I've done a lot of sport, but dance is probably the greatest sport I've ever done and it is the only sport I have continued to this day.

UM EXCUSE ME BUT LISTEN UP! Trust me when I say DANCE TAKE SO MUCH WORK! It's not just ballet all though it is one of the most popular type of dance; You don't just do truns and leaps and more turns and leaps! AND IF ANYONE ANYONE SAYS OTHERWISE THEY ARE TRULY MISTAKEN! I have to take of all of my Friday to go to dance form 4:30 (right when I get out of school) to 8:00! It's a huge commitment!

43 Rock Climbing

I love rock climbing 5 people in my family climb including me and my Aunt is nearly professional. It's my favorite sport that I also think is very hard. You need a ton of upper and core stregth

My dad climbed El Capitan, he said it was the hardest thing he had ever done in his life. I also rock climb and it is very demanding, rock climbing is very physical and as well very mental too.

Rock climbing requires great endurance as well as core strength, upperbody strength and finger tip strength.

Rock climbing is awesome

44 Figure Skating

Number 36! Figure skating deserves to be number 1! It is a beautiful, fun, and all around fantastic sport! When I am on ice, I am at home! Sure, it might be hard at first, and you might fall a couple times, but in the end, when you finally land a jump or master a footwork step and feel that elated, happy, free, floating feeling, you realize what made you fall in love with this amazing and beautiful sport.

36! figure skating is supposed to be 1! It is so fun, artistic, beautiful and a serious sport! I am on a high level in figure skating and I think it's the one of the best sports ever!

This sport is so great! We match jumping, skating, having speed and dancing and all of this on the ice! We feel free while skating. we never get bored in figure skating because there is always something different to train. that's why we keep training for hours. but figure skating is also the most beautiful sport to look at.

Noo! Figure skating should switch would switch. Holy cow 39!

45 Waterpolo

I know, hardest sport ever too! People just don't know about it as well as football, basketball, and baseball. And swimming is a piece of Waterpolo, so Waterpolo should be higher than swimming.

Water polo is way better than most of the sports that are above. It is basically all of these sports combined into one so yeah

I think that all these sports are good and everything but if water polo had more popularity and people knew about it it would be in the top 10

Water polo is amazing for fitness! I know it's a bit aggressive but is so much fun!

51 Horse Jumping

The best thing about horse riding is the bond you have with your horse. Nothing else can equal that bond and it keeps on growing stronger with every day that passes. No other sports give you the chance to bond with such incredible, beautiful animals. Jumping is the best part, it is all about trust and the feeling you get when you have a clear round and you know that you and your horse did it together is amazing. Obviously all you people have never experience the incredible soaring feeling you get as you clear the jump and that wonderful sense of acheivement. To be a really good riding takes years of hard work and dedication and only the best make it to the top but as long as I live I will keep trying. I wil never, NEVER give up riding!

Horseback riding is the best sport in my opinion. It is something not everyone can experience but I am one who has experienced it. I also have done dance, basketball, soccer and other sports but I still think equestrian is best. Having a teammate that we have to speak to with no words. Its not just about the riding in fact it is way more then that. It is a friendship, bond, freedom that can never be broken. It is something I will be doing my whole life.

How is horse back riding number 65 this sport is incredibly difficult and dangerous. You are on a animal That has a mind of its own! The horse could decide to kill you at any time or to mention how may falls there are and even deaths. However if you what to put in the time, effort, money, and bravery than give riding a try it is so fun. I love it u will too

Equestrian is the most dangerous and hardest sport I know it should be higher on this list.

52 Rowing

Rowing in my opinion is the best sport because first off it was the first official sport in the Olympic games, it has the most demand on your body. The pain is what makes you want to keep doing it. Even though only a few people row, it should be in the top ten and more people should do it also.

Well it's about as addictive as heroin. I have been rowing for 4 years and I honestly don't know why I keep doing it. The pain during and after a race is something unimaginable. It's not respected. I don't know why I keep doing it but the thought of quitting kills me.

It is very hard, very few people play it, it is addictive, and you are sitting facing backwards on a 27 foot boat that weighs 30 pounds moving through the water, with your own strength, at 20 mph

The most pain is not only the physical aspect of the sport the the great mental portions, having to stay in sync with eight other guys at a time is hared than you think while at the same time keeping in time

53 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.

WHY ISN'T HORSEBACK RIDING TOP 20?! I've been riding since 3rd grade and loved it. This is the hardest sport of all. You need will, patience, LOTS of leg strength, and MORE! You're basically getting a gigantic animal to submit to you, and carry you on. For those that say that this isn't a hard sport, try galloping towards a three-foot tall post with just your feet keeping you on a huge prey animal! You also need to be able to multitask double-time, posting, managing reigns, looking to see where you're going, listening to coach's directions, making sure reigns are at correct length. Also, you need a lot of leg strength to do this sport well, like posting, for example, is extremely tiring. Sure, the horse is doing lots of work, but so are YOU. Why isn't this sport popular, I'll never know. It's truly amazing to watch, and much more experience for yourself. Most people are scared only because of the costs associated (half-chaps, paddock boots, helmet, breeches, gloves, etc.) Please PLAY ...more

HOW IS THIS NUMBER 82! Horse back riding is the best sport on earth. Riding is behind. Speed walking. WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. horse back riding lets you be free especially when your jumping. I don't know what sport you people play but I ride horses and trust me it is the best. I love it so will you

I think horseback ridding is really fun! It can make you feel tall, I really love that feeling!

54 Surfing Surfing Surfing is a surface water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a surfer, rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore.

Surfing is the Greatest sport of all time. It is, after all, the sport of Kings. How many other sports can claim that and claim to be older than dirt? Very few. Try it and you'll be hooked.

Surfing is not very popular, but it is definitely the most enjoyable sport on the entire planet. I've tried many sports in my life and surfing is definitely the one. I don't get why this is ranked so low; should be ranked at least higher than kung fu and gymnastics. After all, this is a top 10 sports list not a top 10 random activity list. - zhuoran

Surfing should be number 3 after baseball and motorcross. Shredd!

How is this 68 all the girls in my class play it except two! I love it so much, there's no contact, you can read the game and the feeling you get when shooting to win the game with an audience in front of you cheering for you is so exhilarating!

Basketball's baby sister. The definition of lame.

I play it at school I thought it would be on top20

This sport is one good sport.Popular at schools.

60 Cheerleading

OK. First of all. If you are a competitive cheerleader, I respect you. I'm a football player. And quite frankly, I don't think you should be saying your sport is harder than ours. I'm guessing the conditioning is the same as I've never been a cheerleader. And you shouldn't disrespect us football players as we work really hard and you obviously haven't played football. Now I will admit that we football players hate on you a lot. But you cheerleaders hate just as much as us. And no offense, but we get the glory because when people go to a football game, the watch the football players, not the cheerleaders. But sorry, if you are a sideline cheerleader, but sideline cheer isn't a sport and no one really cares that much about it. But competitive cheer probably is very hard and you do risk your lives, as do us. We should just appreciate each other. - SuperCharged

Cheerleading is the best because even though they get no credit for anything they do they still cheer for the football players which get all the glory and people just make fun of cheerleaders meanwhile were risking our lives every time a flyer goes in the air or a tumbling skill is thrown. It really dangerous and they wear no protection. They must be strong, trusting, and have lots of stamina. They're conditioning is WAYYY harder than football.

This is not a sport. Cheerleading competitions are almost the same as marching band competitions, and no one calls marching band a sport

Agree with 45
