As part of the GCSE PE course, I have been asked to think about the components of fitness in a range of activities with a view to identifying the King of the Sports. Over the past 6 weeks we have been testing out a number of sports to find the King of the Sports. The sports we tested were: Football, Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Badminton, Basketball and Tennis. We tested certain aspects to see which sport is the hardest and best and which sport you need the most components to reach the highest level. We tested the sports on: Power, Speed, Co-ordination, Balance, Agility and Reaction Time. Hypothesis I think that football or rugby is the King of the Sports. Methodology Over the past 6 weeks we have tested some sports in our PE lessons to try and identify the King of the Sports. We have tested; football, rugby, cricket, tennis, basketball, hockey and badminton. To identify the King of the Sports we applied six tests to each sport. The tests we applied were; agility, reaction time, power, speed, co-ordination and balance. In each lesson we played a match in the tested sport, and at the end of each lesson we rated the sport with marks out of 10 for each of the components. Results | Football | Rugby | Cricket | Tennis | Hockey | Badminton | Basketball | Agility | 8 | 8 | 6 | 7 | 7 | 9 | 7 | Reaction Time | 7 | 8 | 9 | 9 | 7 | 10 | 8 | Co-ordination | 8 | 8 | 8 | 8 | 8 | 9 | 8 | Speed | 9 | 8 | 6 | 9 | 7 | 8 | 7 | Balance | 9 | 7 | 7 | 8 | 7 | 7 | 7 | Power | 9 | 9 | 8 | 9 | 7 | 6 | 7 | 50,48,44,50,43,49,44 The results are shown in the table above and are shown in the graph. Discussion The results show that it is difficult to crown one sport as King of Sports. Each sport requires different strengths, skills and attributes to perform at peak performance.
