You wouldn’t expect it, but mountaineering can be one of the most dangerous sports out there. Each year, there are thousands of people who are injured while mountaineering. Most of those injuries result from slipping on a rock or falling. But the number of dangers in the wilderness is almost insurmountable. Death is common, but more so are missing persons.
Boxing, and its cousin MMA, are sports where literally every athlete player walks away from with an injury. Whether they be small injuries like a black eye or a fat lip or more severe injuries, they can really take a toll on people. Approximately 10 people die each year in boxing from head and neck injuries sustained during a bout. The number grows much larger when you consider the number of people who die after a prolonged career of getting their heads beaten in. The same could be said about all fighting sports.
Racing is an extremely dangerous sport. Imagine crashing into a wall at 200 miles per hour in either a vehicle or a motorcycle. The chances of surviving that are pretty slim. On top of that, the fuel could ignite and then you’ll be burned to death. It’s a death we wish upon no one.
Surfers are true adrenaline junkies. Falling into the water from sea level might sound like a harmless thing, but surfers are usually traveling at a very high rate of speed. On top of that, they don’t just hit the water; they often hit the reef below. If the water and the reef don’t kill them, then the sharks will. All around, you have to be pretty crazy to want to surf.
You can imagine what it would be like to go skydiving and have your main shoot fail. There would be a quick moment of panic, then you remember you have a reserve shoot. But what do you do when that one fails? There is literally nothing you can do except hope that you can bounce. Even if the shoot works out, you can get stuck in the trees, on power lines, or even get hit by a passing plane. It’s a sport that is not for the faint of heart.
