What do you think is the world's fittest sport?

Here are the results of a poll which asked which sport has the greatest overall demands of fitness (not necessarily the sport with the fittest athlete). The results are based on 261 votes. I listed 15 of the sports that are usually considered to be the fittest, though in retrospect there are a few others that should have been on the list such as motocross, which probably accounts for the high number of 'other' votes.

This poll has been a basis of the competition to determine the World's Fittest Sport, this time many more sports are included.
