What Sport Has The Most Deaths?

The different sports with the most deaths are recorded in football. In a recent study of fatalities published in the British Medical Journal, it was found that out of 715 reported deaths from 2003-2013, 253 were from football.

The following are the 3 most dangerous sports in the world.

1- The first sport on our list, Rugby, has an average of 19 deaths per year. This sport is dangerous because of its fast pace and brute physical techniques.

2- Luge, which was introduced in 1860s by German soldiers who wanted to get past the Swiss defenses, has an average of 6 deaths per year. It is considered one of the fastest Olympic events but it is also very dangerous due to its curves at high speeds and lack of safety mechanisms.

3- Finally, Pro Wrestling has an average of 4 deaths per year. This sport involves grappling on a mat or on top of a raised platform which can be both advantageous for grapplers or fatal for wrestlers
