Anyone who watches sports, or participates in any, knows one undeniable fact—there is danger involved. Every sport can have its athletes suffer anything from a scraped elbow to life threatening injuries, which may even include death.
Each sport has its own risks and rewards. Most athletes do not care about this, though, as they are attracted to the glory, fame, pride and money that comes along with being a professional athlete.
From extreme to the most common sports, we decided to make our own list of 10 of the most dangerous sports you will ever see around the world. In this case you will also be aware of the sports you have chosen to play.
- Bull Running (Encierro)
This sport involves running in front of a small group of cattle, typically six, of the Toro Bravo breed that has been let loose on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town’s streets.
The most popular bull run happens every year in Pamplona, in northern Spain. Every year around 300 brave amigos are injured at the event, mostly due to contusions from being knocked over. A record of 14 people has been killed during Pamplona’s Bull Running since 1910.
