doesnt matter about period of time though

matters about overall fitness in terms of cardiovasclar, local and overall strength, heart rate, skills, technical issues etc.

each decathlon event is shorter then all on the list and they arent good at a few events ususally

I'd nominate footballers, as they have to be strong in almost all areas of fitness. But I'm biased I suppose.

Footballers are notoriously unfit in comparison to other sports; similar to rugger bugger boys.

Of the ones suggested, I'd probable say boxers.

F1 because I just love the sounds of the engines, the gear-shifts and the cars as they zoom past.

Granted there are some lazy ones, but at the very peak they are extremely fit.

Most the other sports don't require such a wide degree of attributes.

footballers can take a rest on the pitch when they havent got the ball or can jog slowly or stop and catch a breather. its stop/start

they also dont need strength and theyre fitness test results overall wouldnt put them above the sports i mentioned i think although beckham ot 23 and complteed the bleep test but this is suited to footballers and rugby (eg stop/start/ twist)

The bleep test isn't really much about stop start once the intervals get reduced. I know someone who needed 16 on the bleep test to get into the English Youth Cricket team despite being a wicket keeper.

Saints are indeed skint. Don't be surprised if like Gleeson, another rather famous player joins his brother at another superleague club. The money is there.
Another way to get round the salary cap would be a dual code contract .

Patrick Vieira has heightened the uncertainty over his Arsenal future by refusing to comment on whether he is set to join Real Madrid.

"I am sorry," said Vieira when questioned by a Spanish reporter on Arsenal's tour of Austria.

"I can not speak. This is not the right moment. I cannot talk about Real Madrid. Leave me. Don't do this."

looks like he's off to Madrid then, so who'll replace the idiot?

I think that if you took all the major u.k. sports and ran some sort of series of fitness test Rugby League players would come out on top.

I am not saying that the fittest person in sport is a Rugby League player, I am just saying that I think that the average Rugby League player would be fitter then their football / rugby union / boxing counterpart.

I would have to agree with that statement. After that they could look at the difference between the average britsh RL player and your average AUssie RL player

Which sport has the best overall athlete and is the hardest?

I heard that motocross riders or something, scored highly on such tests and outperformed all others in certain tests.

Cardiovascularly, cyclists are best but all round maybe not. All round, the fittest athlete could be cyclists, decathletes, gymnasts, rowers or boxers?

or what else, or what?
Rowers or Swimmers
