Percentage of people who think a sport is a sport
You may have noticed football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer are missing from this chart, because no one questions their legitimacy as real sports. However, a few other things jumped out to me from these results.
1. More people consider cheerleading a sport than they do hunting or fishing, which is just an absolute lie.
2. An astounding 80 percent of people surveyed think ultimate frisbee is a sport. That’s higher than curling, table tennis, weightlifting, archery, ice dancing, and sailing–which are all Olympic sports.
3. There is a big discrepancy when it comes to F1 racing and NASCAR, where more people consider F1 a sport than they do NASCAR. They are literally the same thing.
4. Zero percent of people surveyed consider CrossFit a sport. Thank God.
