5 Extremely Dangerous Sports in the World

The oldest definition of sport is of anything humans find amusing or entertaining. But today sport is all forms of competitive physical activity which, through casual or organized participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical fitness and provide entertainment to participants. Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals.

Sports are most often played just for fun or for the simple fact that people need exercise to stay in good physical condition. However, professional sport is a major source of entertainment.

All sport has danger as harm to the body is very common in outside games. There are people who have faced serious damages and even sometimes death. Severe sports are where such occurrences are noticed generally. They are amusing, courageous and enjoyable but only till the player is secure.

Many people love danger and excitement. There are so many dangerous sports some people are use to play. People trying out this must be highly courageous and challenging.

Cave Diving

Cave Diving

Cave diving is a type of technical diving in which specialized equipment is used to enable the exploration of caves which are at least partially filled with water. In the United Kingdom it is an extension of the more common sport of caving, and in the United States an extension of the more common sport of SCUBA diving.

Compared to caving and SCUBA diving, there are relatively few practitioners of cave diving. This is due in part to the specialized equipment (such as rebreathers, diver propulsion vehicles and dry suits) and skill sets required, and in part because of the high potential risks, including decompression sickness and drowning.
Despite these risks, water-filled caves attract SCUBA divers, cavers, and speleologists due to their often unexplored nature, and present divers with a technical diving challenge. Underwater caves have a wide range of physical features, and can contain fauna not found elsewhere.

BASE Jumping

BASE Jumping

BASE jumping, also sometimes written as B.A.S.E jumping, is an activity where participants jump from fixed objects and use a parachute to break their fall. “BASE” is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: buildings, aerials, spans (bridges), and earth (cliffs).

If it’s not a bird or a plane then it’s probably… a base jumper, one of those individuals who just don’t feel truly alive unless they’re hurling themselves with nothing but a parachute from buildings, antennas, bridges or cliffs.

Chances are that if you don’t die by reaching the ground before planned, the wind could easily slam you into the object you’ve just left behind–or hoped to. Not only is this activity lethal–between 5 and 15 people die each year, according to The International PRO BASE Circuit–it’s also illegal in many parts of the world, including the U.S. Well, someone has to save those poor bastards from themselves!

High Altitude Climbing

Today, about one death occurs for every six successful summits on Everest, and each victim had to pass corpses on the way up. Real mountaineers face every threat you can imagine, up to and including drowning. Gravity must queue up for its chance to kill you, as hypoxia, hypothermia, frostbite and pneumonia all have prior reservations.

Even a regular injury can be fatal, as rescue helicopters simply can’t get to you and your buddies may be too gassed to help. But if you do summit (you’ll probably have to wait in line), keep those glasses on or you’ll burn up your corneas from excess UV radiation. Kinda defeats the purpose, huh? To date, 179 out of 1,300 different Everest climbers have died, but mortality rates have started to decline since 1990.

There are racers who have lost their lives and so this shows how dangerous it is. Isle of Man TT event one of the famous motorcycling event where around 220 lives has been lost in hundred years.

Bull Running

Bull Running

 

The Running of the Bulls (in Spanish encierro, from the verb encerrar, to lock/shut up, to pen) is a practice that involves running in front of a small group (typically a dozen) of bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town’s streets.

The most famous running of the bulls is that of the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in honour of San Fermín in Pamplona, although they are held in towns and villages across Spain, Portugal, and in some cities in Mexico, Mesquite, Nevada, and southern France, during the summer. Unlike bullfights, which are performed by professionals, anyone older than 18 may participate in an encierro.

The purpose of this event was in origin to transport the bulls from the off-site corrals where they had spent the night, to the bullring where they would be killed in the evening.

Youngsters would jump among them to show off their bravado.
Every year, between 200 and 300 people are injured during the run although most injuries are contusions due to falls and are not serious. Since 1910, 16 people have been killed in Pamplona.
