5 Sports That Could Kill You
People have been practicing sports since ancient times, and through the course of time, sports have evolved. They've integrated technology, new rules, new ways to see the world and new ways to tweak your mind into thinking it you can do everything that you set your mind to.
But these 5 sports are more than just a game; they're a way of life. As a result, many of these 'extreme' sports have gone against the rulebook of safety and time limits and have instead molded daredevils who either died in the process or lived long enough to see their sport become highly popular.
Here are five such examples.
Parkour is a form of free-running that involves perceiving your environment in alternative ways. It is mostly practiced because of the sheer adrenaline rush that it gives out and for the fact that the moves look very cool when they work out as planned. Parkour has seen people jump from building to building and run on walls. The founding father is David Belle, a Frenchman, who is also an actor and a stunt choreographer.
4. BASE Jumping
The abbreviation “BASE” stands for Buildings, Antennas, Spans or Earth. BASE jumping involves a jumper who purposely flings himself from a BASE, wearing only a hand-deployed parachute. This sport is a very dangerous one and can lead to a fast and brutal death.
