Top Ten Toughest Sports Of All TimeThe sport that requires you to be the biggest and the strongest, where nothing must stand in your way.
The Top Ten
I'm 12 years old. I have been playing since I was 7. Every practice I took, the coaches were barring down on me and I you say all you do is have a hockey stick and score a goal. BS! It's much harder than how it looks
I am 11 years old and I have been playing since I was 3 and hockey is so hard because I have already gotten 2 concussions and my friend has gotten 5 concussions in 2 years so you can't tell me hockey's not tough
I'm 13. I've been playing since I was 5. People say all you do is try to go after a small puck. That's crap. All the hits, drawn penalties, blood, fights, everything is hockey. I mean, to me, it's life
I love it but its very hardV 1 Comment
No other sport requires training and fitness as much as boxing does. It takes a daily routine of hard work: weight lifting, abs, rope skipping, heavy and speed bag punching, running very kilometers a day... It's not easy at all!V 2 Comments
Totally should be ahead of soccer... - Judo2014
I can understand rugby, but wrestling should be at least top 2. Wrestlers work the hardest even after cutting weight for a week. We constantly have to run so that we can be in better shape than we are. I have wrestled soccer players that came in and wrestle me and pass out after a 6 minute match. Wrestling is no joke and I wish people would stop treating it like that and step on the mat and see how it really is.

Rugby you don't have to we're stupid helmet, shoulder pads, or football pants. You just need to wear underwear, pants, Jersey, cleats and a shirt and also RUGBY ROCKS
helmet: hahahaha naive, protection: think again, being hospitalized god knows how many times: priceless. - fireinside96
No protection at all. Grueling.
The Americans American football is rugby but worsened and a lot more boring and they even added little pads so they don't get boo booes American football is for sissies ho don't even want to get hurt a little bit!
The degree of difficulty is drastic...basketball is the only sport where people who have never actually played, will try and play pickup...I never played tennis, so you'll never see me trying to play singles in my spare time but EVERYONE believes they can play basketball...how wrong they are
Positioning is a key toughness to reach - True2theGame
Extremely exerting and lack of technique can cause injury..Still an amazing sport though!
Professional soccer requires very high endurance, speed, physical fitness etc. 9- minutes of almost non stop sprinting while opposing team tackles sometimes brutally. Very tough game at the high levels!
I'm a goalie and my knees have permanent damage from diving and skidding on the grass
Countless broken fingers, torn ACL, my shins are in bits from getting hit there with a hurl and having to get stitches. You have to wear a helmet and that only came in in the last 2 years no one wears shin pads. Loads of lads have got there teeth knocked out, many games have been abandoned. The game is played at a sprint pace and not much time to think when you get the ball.
Broke my jaw and still hurled on (55minutes) till the match was over! Not many sport lads do that they look to be taken off! Soccer shouldn't be near the top 10!
Toughest and fastest field sport on earth, period
The hardest thing to do in sports is hit a baseball, but you don't know what pitch is coming
harder to throw a perfect games than to do anything else in sports - olhrocks
Learning and perfection ONE SKILL within ONE ROUTINE takes more grueling effort and SKILL than playing 3 games of Rugby.
Being Flexible and able to accuratley tumble - True2theGame
If you've Ever seriously thought about playing water polo, you've probably heard about the 'nail cutting' that players are subject to. That's right our nails (in my circuit) can't pass the end of our fingers, while they do check hands well, they almost never check toes. I have scars on my legs from being cut up by other girls with their feet (and I'm sure I've left a few). We're wearing less padding then soccer or rugby. And we have to tread all while people are thrashing at us.
Water polo is a crazy and often barbaric sport. Six swimmers beat the crap out of six other swimmers, and they wear no kind of armor at all except for the ear guards. I think water polo should be number one!
Water polo is intense. And this includes just swimming, which I can't believe isn't even on the list! Water polo tests your endurance extremely.
Try swimming the whole gameV 2 Comments
People have died while playing. Backs have been broken. Bones are broken every game. Many players experiance concusion.
Hitting the ball in a straight line - True2theGame
Being able to control a 1200lb animal! - horselover1
climbing mt. everest and the difficult to go down - ronluna
controlling where you want to go - ronluna
I've done almost every other sport but right now I do mixed martial arts and surfing. Nobody has any idea what surfing is like. I surf in 35 degree water with double overhead waves. If you do not make the drop down the wave then you get the pounding of a lifetime with freezing water flushing through your wetsuit. Not anybody can just paddle out there. It is so easy to get hypothermia out there and it only takes 30 minutes to die. Also there are the people who surf 50 foot waves and up over super sharp coral reefs. People die all the time and it just takes one fall. You can be held under for minutes at a time.
