WWE wrestling


although it is physically demanding also, pro-wrestling is not a sport

same goes for bodybuilding.

I have to disagree with you here sir, bodybuilding is a sport, it requires discipline not only in training, but also in keeping to the strict diet, workout patterns, and you have yo have extreme endurance. I know a lot of people think that bodybuilders just inject 'roids and then they lift a little, and then that's it, they get big, but this is very far from the truth. It's a sport that requires dedication and sacrifice.

My choice for most physically demanding sport? Triathlon.

f1 - the driver is subjected to as much as 5g in some circuits....it's like riding a roller coaster for 1.5 hrs... and that's just the race itself....meron pang testing, free practice and qualifying...

ice hockey - ice skating alone is exhausting...dagdagan mo pa ng hockey skills ....if you notice halos every 3 minutes nagpapalit ng line sa hockey......may mga legal pang banggaan ng katawan yan at minsan may boxing pa....sabi nga nila pag may nag aaway na players, hindi na inaawat kasi hinihintay na lang magkapaguran...

I vote for triathlon as among the most demanding sports. I say among as other sports also require a lot from the athlete's mind and body.

Aside from the Ironman (the most famous of which is the Hawaii Ironman) I once saw a Tenfold Ironman broadcast. Athletes were required to swim 38 km, ride their bikes for 1800 km and then run for 480 km. Sleeping and rest was allowed whenever the athletes needed to, but still its one grueling task at hand.

Finishing time was 8 days up I believe

I remember reading somewhere...sometime in the 1970s, there was this TV show that pitted the notable players of many sports against each other in a series of physical challenges. Formula 1 had its own entry in the legendary dyslexic racer, Sir Jackie Stewart.

Stewart actually emerged victorious. That seems to say a lot about how fit you have to be to handle Formula 1. It's tough! We see only 20% of what they do for a living. The race drivers and test drivers have to test and test and test between races and the winter off-season.

I remember reading Fernando Alonso's physical trainer back in his days at Renault remarking at how huge his neck muscles are. They have to be---if they were any weaker he'd have trouble driving a race distance. If you've seen Alonso or his former teammate Giancarlo Fisichella in shorts and athletic attire, they're very, very fit.





Aside from F1, my vote would have to go to triathlons.

true, and I have lots of respect for the displine bodybuilders have, but to me it's just a male beauty pageant. Beauty queens have tons of discipline too.

For me the toughest sport. DEEP SEA Diving...


I didn't know this was a sport

how do you win?

F1 is really tough, if you think about it there hasn't been a fat F1 driver, but there are fat NFL players.
