Top Ten Greatest Sports


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Gaelic Football

Another amazing Irish Sport. Definitely top five. The Irish national sports should be two of the top five if judged on the quality of the sport rather than popularity due to colonialism, weight of population or cultural influence

Many don't see it but it is a very hard sport to play. Amazing none the less.

Gaelic football is a great sport to watch or play.
Definitely the most underestimated sport.

82 Fencing

Fencing is one of the greatest sports I have ever played. The glorious combination of Tactics, Patience, Speed, and Footwork is put to work in this sport. Fencing is extremely underrated mainly because is is expensive, but otherwise it is the most enjoyable sport I have been a part of.

the coolist sport ever and surprisingly one of the most tiring

Great back and forth sport that is very interesting to watch. I don't know why circus sports such as juggling and unicycle hockey are higher than this.

Although fencing requires lots of physical and mental patience, as a fencer myself I can say it is the best sport - Clayttles

86 Softball

I know it's practically the same as baseball, but it's not because there are many different pitches and the pitches can be fast and really hurt when the ball hits you. I think it's a great sport because I played tee- ball
In kindergarten and worked my way up until now. Today My team won championship. Since softballs are bigger it doesn't mean they are easier to hit. You have to work on getting your sliding right, and baseball players don't slide, they dive to the base.

Softball should be number one have you ever of if it was easy everybody would well that's what makes softball number one in its quality

I think it should be in at least the top 5 I mean every girl I meet plays softball softball is fun and nice to get out there and feel free I love it I mean I said five but if not that top 10

I'm 11years old and I eat, drink, and breathe softball. I play on a select traveling team and we are all like sisters. I am only 4'7 and people are always saying that I'm to small to play but I love proving them wrong I get on base 4 out of 5 times. I am a great center fielder
and I rarely ever make an error in the field. My dream is to be the center fielder for ATM and be the first hitter as a slapper in the line up. Don't let anyone tell you your not good enough to do something that you want to do. NEVER give up your dream.

91 Slamball

have any of you seen this its amaing

92 Orienteering

Everyone can do orienteering and it's really cool especially urban orienteering.

Orienteering combines running, brainwork and nature. It's one of the most beautiful and all-around sports in the world.

93 BMX racing

It's a fast pace dangerous sport that has only just been recognised

94 Competitive Bodybuilding
95 Triple Jump
96 Synchronized Swimming

This is by far the greatest sport. It's hard, requires endurance, grace, flexibility, memory, strength and you have to practice a lot. It is an olympic sport, which a lot of the sports above it aren't. It is both sharp and precise and graceful. Please vote for it.

I do synchronized swimming myself. It makes no sense that it is so low on this list - pez

97 Sailing

Sailing is so underrated! No one understands how much hard work is involved in RACING. Look up 'Sailing Shack' on YouTube to see what sailing is really like.

Being out on the water is an amazing feeling. Feeling the boat power up and the spray washing over you. Its just awesome.

100 Pole Vaulting

Pure athletic ability. Lower body, upper body, speed, strength, balance, coordination, technique, and courage. The only thing better is gymnastics but that is not as fun!
