Extreme sports are sports that are considered risky. They often involve speed, high places, and a high level of physical exertion. It used to be that only people who were a “little bit crazy” did extreme sports, but now many extreme sports are actually quite mainstream.

One funny thing I found when I searched Google for a list of extreme sports was unicycling! In Australia, I guess this might be an extreme sport, but in Japan, it’s one that many children learn, right?? Even things like snowboarding and mountain biking are listed as extreme sports!

Have you ever done anything that would be considered an extreme sport? Do you still do it? Why or why not?
