Is hockey the most dangerous sport or gymnastics?
well, i would say gymnastics is more dangerous b/c it is more likely you would mess up in gymnastics then in hockey. in gymnastics you cold mess one of your tricks up very easily and hurt yourself. in hockey the only time you get hurt is when your checked or something and usally you don't get hurt alot from checking.

Gymnastics is, in fact, one of the most challenging sports. Strength is a huge factor in gymnastics. Gymnastics is 10% physical and 90% mental. You have to train your mind to …do different skills in gymnastics. Answer Yes, gymnastics is the most challenging sport there is. This is for a number of reasons. First, most people don't realize that gymnastics was created as a method of training all types of athletes. It was a way to train athletes from other sports as far back as ancient Greece. Later gymnastics was utilized as a method for training the military in more than one country. It become organized as an individual sport later, and then progressed to it's present form during the last 50 years or so. Initially other events were included in gymnastics like rope climb and trampoline, but were later replaced by the modern apparatus. What makes gymnastics so difficult is that it requires very high levels of upper body strength, extraordinary balance and coordination, as well as a good deal of courage and confidence - and that is just to be an accomplished beginner. I've challenged athletes from other sports to try some basic skills or even just warm-ups and have found that the vast majority have great difficulty learning these skills. To reach the higher levels in gymnastics takes extraordinary dedication and hard work, especially compared to most other sports. For example, in order to learn a simple back handspring on the floor takes many months or even years to learn for many athletes in the sport. For athletes outside gymnastics it is even more difficult because most are not used to spending so much time and energy to learn a single skill. I've been coaching girls gymnastics for 35 years and during every one of those years, at least one, but usually more of my students end up breaking records in their school for the fitness tests. Such things as sit-ups, push-ups and chin-ups seem relatively easy to gymnasts because those are simply warm-ups or conditioning exercises in gymnastics. I am talking about young girls setting the record in these categories for the entire school-boys and girls together. That says a lot about gymnastics right there. Another good measuring stick is to compare how ex-gymnasts perform when they take up other sports after leaving gymnastics. Of all the students I've coached, all have moved to the top of the ranks in their chosen sport. It is also worth noting that gymnasts usually look to get involved in more challenging sports such as pole vault, rock climbing and springboard/platform diving. When gymnasts take up more generalized sports such as soccer, track or other school sports they are always among the best regardless of whether they were highly ranked gymnasts. In the 1970 and 80's there were some TV shows that showcased celebrity athletes competing against each other in an obstacle-course format. Former World Champion Kurt Thomas would have won the competition except for the fact that the weight lifting event was scored on total weight lifted and didn't take that amount into consideration as a percentage of the athlete's body weight. If they had, Kurt would have won by a large margin. And he is only 5'7 tall. Competitive gymnastics attracts a certain personality type. In fact recreational gymnastics classes has a large share of such personality types as well. These students are more focused, determined and able to work through situations that involve a good deal of fear. Fear is an integral part of gymnastics training because turning upside down will attempting many skills involves risk of serious injury. There are other sports that involve risk, but they are not at the same level or of the same type as gymnastics. Although there are exceptions. For instance, springboard, platform and cliff diving involve similar risks. So does trampoline, trapeze and other acrobatic sports. But for the most part gymnastics is in a class by itself. If you have any doubts, enroll in your local gymnastics school and see how long it takes to learn a back handspring or a round-off. These are basic skills in gymnastics similar to learning to run or throw in baseball. I have heard from many people on this question but I have never been convinced that there is another sport as demanding of it's beginner athletes as gymnastics. Elite gymnastics is an entirely different world compared to other sports. There are so many great sports though, and I don't mean to diminish their importance or the challenge they offer their participants. I love all sports and wish I had time to pursue more of them. Gymnastics is the hardest sport in the world, not golf. Gymnastics is physically hard and challenging, golf is just tricky. triathlons, running, swimming and cycling. absolutely no debate are those the hardest sports, indescribably painful and demanding, you work so hard you don't have time to think and you get into a certain stage of physical condition where the simplest moves at practice or racing require EVERY ounce of will power you have. There are kids as young as 13 in swimming who make the olympic trials. THE TYPICAL college swimmer or senior level swimmer puts in around 3-4 hours 6 times ever week for the WHOLE year. There are people in x country races I've seen running in college who fall flat on their face at the finish line cause they're so tired
Gymnastics are dangerous, however it's not the most dangeroussport. Gymnastics require excellent balance skills and strengthtoo.
My daughter is a gymnast, as was I. It's probably the most dangerous sport. I have had countless injuries, my whole life, most were because of gymnastics. It didn't cha…nge how I felt about it though. I wouldn't let my daughter pursue it, if was going to kill her, or if she didn't wanna do it.
i think that artistic would be the most dangerous because your doing tumbles and the beam and at any time if you bend over at the wrong time or something your likely to …hurt yourself.
Any sport is dangerous if you don't wear a cup. Case closed. For the most part, it's fine; occasionally things go wrong (and I've seen people, as well as myself, go to …hospital for various things while playing). But it's part of life. I would expect to be injured somehow playing any sport.
the ones in my ass
probably because you need all different kinds of strength including arm, stomach, and leg strength. you need to be able to run and keep up your energy...mostly for floor… routines i probably wouldn't say its the MOST active though. but many sports are equal in their activness...hope this helped!!
well it can be a dangerous sport but its more of a fun sport then risky. well i hope i answered your question bye-bye
The defficlty of the moves performed
putting your leg behind your head cause i have a friend and he had a friend that did it and her leg got stuck
I have heard vault but I have mainly gotten hurt on parallel bars.
The way i see it they both have their own difficulties as they both require a different set of skills; ie. gymnastics requires strength, balance and flexibility where hockey r…equires endurance, hand-eye co-ordination and teamwork. In saying that, it's very opinion based and it's likely to vary from one person to the next, so i guess ultimately it would depend on variables such as athleticism, enjoyment, skills etc.
although not a famous competative sport, i believe more people are killed skydiving. for a competative sport i belive more people are killed Boxing.
not even close. No one has died playing hockey in the NHL or it's minor leagues and very few have died playing in junior, university and international leagues. The most dang…erous is probably either Formula One racing which has more than 40 or 50 deaths. Or maybe motorcycle racing which has more than 100 deaths over the various circuits. Also, if you're just talking in terms of degrading health effects, then the NFL probably has it beat with the number of registered debilitating conditions, concussions, paralyzing spinal injuries, and broken major bones claimed by former players.
