    If I have to pick ONE, guess would go with long distance swimming.

    NHL

    Speed:

    MLB

    Agility:

    I'm a huge football fan, but as far as overall athleticism, hockey players are tops.

    I voted for basketball.
    When a friend's nephew was wanting to play the doctor wouldn't allow it saying that the sport was too grueling; the constant running; yet he was permitted to play football. The boy suffered from asthma.
