Is Cheerleading a Sport? [POLL]
The argument continues this morning as we discuss whether or not cheerleading is a sport. Gary says no. Tracy says yes. We are handing the final verdict over to you, take a minute and cast your vote!
The discussion began after Tracy read an interesting story related to cheerleading injuries:
According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, during the last 26 years, disabilities caused by head or spine injuries are almost twice as high for female high school cheerleaders than for female players of all sports combined – to the tune of 73 “catastrophic injuries,” and tragically, two deaths.
Well, after sharing the story with Gary, the argument began whether or not cheerleading is actually a sport. We have agreed to disagree. Can you help us out?
