Postby Guttpuppy » Sat May 17, 2003 1:21 am

A while back USA Today ran a series of articles.

The 10 Hardest Things To Do In Sports.

10. Downhill skiing at 80-90 mph.

9. Saving a penalty kick in soccer.

8. Competing in the Tour de France.

7. Running a marathon.

6. Landing a quadruple jump in figure skating.

5. Returning a 130-mph tennis serve.

4. Hitting a golf ball long and straight off the tee.

3. Pole vaulting at 15 feet or higher.

2. Driving a racecar at "mega speeds" around a track and not getting hurt.

1. Hitting a baseball thrown at 90+ mph.

Seems they forgot about becoming the worlds heavy weight boxing champ, sure seems a LOT harder than any of those mentioned. :-)

ive seen this before and i was kinda surprised that hitting a 90 mph pitch was the hardest thing to do... i think i could do that alot easier than a quadruple jump. 8-o

I think we could do all ten with a little luck. But even with luck the results might be intresting. Like #10 downhill sking at 80-90 mph you might be able to go that fast but it will probably result in a broken leg or worse

I think winning a gold medal while bobsledding naked should be on that list.

For my money, it's running a Marathon.
My guess would be that of the 4 major sports, less than 0.5% of the athletes could even finish one. If that. Most of them NBA players.
