What is a better athletic sport soccer or basketball?

Soccer by far. The size of soccer fields are much bigger than basketball courts. Also the shape that soccer players are in beats the shape of some basketball players one to none. occer players also play for a total of 90 minutes while in basketball it is 48 minutes. ( In soccer only 3 players can be switched out leaving 8 players on the field for the whole game, where as in basketball you can switched out at anytime.) Soccer is a combination of speed, endurance, stamina, skill, and teamwork. It is also a sport that uses strategy, strength, and your mind to find the best pass or to get around a defender. Basketball is more of upper arm strength and how the NBA stars look, soccer is played internationally. Both sports take a lot of training and skill however soccer has many more long term benefits.

Whose more athletic soccer players orfootball players?

Soccer players because they have to run more and put more effort into what they are doing. FOOTBALL SUCKS!!!------------------While obviously soccer players run for longer distances and for a longer period of time, that is not all there is to athleticism. Football involves speed, knowledge, running, throwing, catching, tackling, kicking, blocking, block shredding, and a whole mental game that goes a long with it. Soccer players have better cardio, in general better speed, kicking power, kicking precision, defending the net, and dribbling with the ball. None of that really relates to be athletic besides the running aspect. Yes, putting the top 25 fastest soccer players in a distance/speed race against the top 25 fastest football players, the soccer players win majority of the time. But in no way can you say soccer players are more athletic. Faster, yes. Athletic, no.The person above me is clearly a biased soccer fan.With that being said, gymnasts and MMA fighters are the best athletes, hands down.----------------------Well if you guys knew how to play soccer and what is to it then you would know how hard it is. In foot ball you do have to be strong and bulky to play the sport but you only need that energy for a little amount of time. So the team does a fail play and then they take a three minute brake and then start off another five second play following a five minute brake. Soccer on the other constant running, not stoping, one 10 minute brake after 45 minutes of playing. Also soccer players have to be incredibly fast and have to have amazing upper body strength, but anybody reading this would say no because they never scene or played real soccer before. So I think soccer players have to be more athletic and are.

Who is the first black man to play badminton?

Difficult to say. For whatever reason, badminton has largely been popular in Asia and in Great Britain, as well as amongst upper-class elites in the United States. I am told that the sport is finally becoming more popular in Africa, but it has not yet become popular enough to know the names of top players. I am also told that there are a few black players in Canada who compete at a high level.
