This sport really should be in the top ten. Now, I can see how there are more dangerous sports around(ex. : sky diving). But one of the main reasons skaters don't usually get too serious of injuries is because they train. The first step in the sport is learning to balance and not fall! Falling is like a trick; if you land it right, you won't have much trouble getting back up.
I've been skating for a few years now and have had a broken toe broken angle and even was busted open this sport should be in the top 15 if not in the top TEN because if your doing the smallest grind still so much stiff could go wrong even if you do a tiny jump and land a wrong way you could have serious injuries its so under rated just because you see 5-8 year old girls the stuff older people do on skate is mad I'm shocked that this is even under top fifty and when this gets to ten or fifteen this list will at least a little more fixed up

A criterium, a style of Road Racing going around a square city block is much more dangerous than dance. You have over 20 people at minimum moving around at 25 MPH and you are close enough to the other racers that you can touch them. If one person puts the brakes on to hard, the whole group is on the concrete. How is that less dangerous than dance?
Have you ever had a car try to run you over? Then giant trucks fly past you just a few feet beside you. Tons of steel versus a rider? Cheerleading is that dangerous?
The art of the 8 limbs is considered to be one of the most deadliest forms of martial that utilizes 8 human body parts-Fists, Elbows, Knees, and Shins. This should definitely be in the top ten.
Thai boys training from they are 6 to adult, then getting knocked out with knees to the face has got to be a damn dangerous sport. How can you even argue against it, especially if you have seen them clinch, which is even considered "irty" in regular boxing. This should be in top 5.
Espiacilly Muay boran. Its traditonal muay thai and even more brutal, there were techniques putted out of muay thai like kicking at the back of the head etc. Well in muay boran its allowed

Archery is a real dangerous sport and should be number 20... You mess up your positioning of arrow and bam the arrow flies somewhere else and you kill some one... Even with field tips
I would like to hear a sport that's more dangerous. In 2008 three pilots were killed in crashes.
These are highly modified, incredibly fast planes that fly in excess of 500MPH, and fly from 15 to 40 feet off the ground. (That's how fast they fly on the course. These prop-driven airplanes are fast enough to break the speed of sound! )
From 6 to 12 planes fly in any one race at a time and they come within feet of eachother at speeds from 450 to 500 MPH's. There have been dozens of fatal crashes over the years in Reno and Mojave. (Mojave has since been discontinued because no one will insure the event. )
In 2008, one pilot crashed right after takeoff. A woman pilot died after her engine blew and she was attempting an emergency landind. And another pilot was killed when two Formula One planes collided in mid air. The second pilot survived while the other pilot, named Hubler nosed over and flew straight into the ground and disintigrated. (Also, two pylon judges were injured after being hit by the debris. )
As far as injuries, I think bull riding is the worst sport. But I would say that pylon air racing is easily the most deadliest sport in the world.
1. Pylon Air Racing.
2. Free Diving.
3. Bull Riding.
These pilots are crazy!
Shinty is a team sport played with sticks and a ball. Shinty is now played mainly in the Scottish Highlands, and amongst Highland migrants to the big cities of Scotland. similair to hockey but the hard ball can be played in the air like lacrosse! the players wear no protection so often end up with head injuries and the stick can be swung like a baseball bat so often causes injury! players can also physically tackle other players using shoulder barges ect!
Goat tying is really hard on ankles and knees when getting off. But it is such a rush that you can't stop! I love goat tying, but truthfully I think that is why my ankles and knees hurt all the time.
A friend of mine got the birdie in the eye and had to go to the hospital! If he had arrived 2 hours later he would have lost his eye. He did need surgery.
Although bouldering is relatively safe, it deserves to be above badmiton, people falland break bones, dislocate knees, not to mention the strain on your tendons can be so severe you can't hold yourself off the ground. The crash pads can only do so much to protect you.
Not many outside of Europe knows about handball. Its kind of like soccer just with your hands. I have played handball for 10 years and I have gotten a concussion, my shoulder out of place twice, pulled my thumb and fractured many of my fingers. Handball is a tough sport where there is a lot of physical contact and a handball player don't wear a lot of protection just on your knees when you jump to score.
I got hit by a ball and went to hospital and now I can't have children. My friend (Croney) got a broken leg from playing ping pong, weird but true.
