Haha, well there is a lot of debate over which sport is the most demanding.

Different people look at different aspects and consider other physical characteristics. For example, some sports may rely more on the cardiovascular system and VO2 max and such, while other sports may not rely heavily on the cardiovascular, but more on speed, agility, strength, durability, etc. All of these aspects place demand on the body.

However, with consideration to all of these multi-factorial physical demands of various sports a list of the top 10 demanding sports can be put together.

1. MMA/Wrestling

2. American Football

3. Rugby/Rugby League

4. Ice Hockey

5. Lacrosse

6. Soccer

7. Basketball

8. Rowing

9. Tennis

10. Swimming

What is the most popular sport in the olympic games?

In terms of numbers watching - the athletics is by far the largest - however this is due to the size of the stadium and also several events are on the go at any one time in the athletics disciplines. So while athletics as a general discipline is the most popular, the single most popular event is harder to officially recognise. Swimming is generally sold out at every Olympics, as is the gymnastics (however this was not the case in Athens). Given the size of the stadium and the global media coverage the Mens 100m is however the generally regarded to be the most watched event at any Olympics.
