On September 26, Beijing time, a new investigation claimed that there is evidence that golf is more dangerous than rugby.
After analyzing sports injuries in the UK's official National Health Data Report in 2018, golf online retailer GolfSupport.com surveyed 5,732 British sports enthusiasts to try to understand which sports are most vulnerable to injuries.
欧宝app下载 Perhaps not surprisingly, football ranked first, and 71% of the respondents claimed to have suffered injuries when playing football.
Basketball ranked second (69%), and ice hockey ranked third (68%).
But the biggest point of this survey is that golf is more dangerous than rugby and American football.
Two-thirds (66%) of the survey respondents said that they had been injured in playing golf, making the sport ranked fourth on the injury list. In contrast, American rugby only has 63%, while rugby is 61%.
GolfSupport.com's investigation also found that if you want to avoid going to the hospital immediately, darts are for you.
Among the interviewees, only 18% claimed to be injured on the throwing line, making darts the safest sport in the UK. Other "relatively safe" sports include: rowing (26%), cricket (33%), swimming (35%) and snooker (36%).
When asked about the main cause of injury, the vast majority of British people said that it was caused by others' carelessness (63%).
Three-fifths (62%) of Britons injured in sports events require medical care from general practitioners or hospitals.
Those British people who looked injured were not more careful afterwards. When asked if they were more cautious after being injured, 61% said no, and only 39% said they would.
