I see it in the same league as Gymnastics... so yeh I guess
If it really was the way American TV portrays it then no of course it wouldn't be a sport but it's not
its not really a sport but it can be bloody good fun to watch sometimes
No. No I havent been stealing threads off "CnB".
considering i havent actually gone there ill just assume that something simalar exists. which i didnt know about.
i put no coz although it involved a lot of gymnastics, they go to a sportsfield to cheer on a sports team i.e they are not the sport people are coming to see. And, i think it's more dance/majorettes (dances like swing have lifts in them etc, but they aren't classed as sport...)
I don't think you get ESPN, which is the major sports network in the US.
Cheerleading in itself is not a sport. Competitive cheerleading is definitely a sport. If you watch the Cheerleading World Championships (they have them!) the skills these people have are insane. It came on and my entire family was riveted. The typical high school in the states is just jumping up and down and waving pom-poms, but the competitive teams do really acrobatic perfomances.
well its not a True sport.... for a start no balls are involved... only pom poms... ok joke aside... it could in theory be classed as a sport as competitions do take place and are very competative, but in my mind it is not a sport.
No I wouldnt say so. I mean you dont go to a basketball match to see the cheerleaders do you?(unless your'e related to them)
If darts and tiddlywinks are officially sports, I think we can safely say cheerleading is.
what defines a sport really?
i would never do it but to be a cheerleader you'd have to be extremely fit.
so yes i guess it is
