    Default What sport do you wish you were super good at?

    What sport do you wish you were super good at? And was it a sport you were ever good at or ever did either as a kid or adult? The "sport" of fitness or bodybuilding is fine.

    Why do you wish you were super good at it and is it something you would like to be good at now or something you would have liked to be good at all your days? Why?

    Traditional sport - tennis. I only got to play a little in high school gym class, but I thought it was really fun, and I wasn't that bad at it.

    Nontraditional - belly dancing. I am working toward getting better and better, practicing an hour most days. I love it because it's fun, expressive, a good workout, interesting, muscle building, challenging, and beautiful. I do wish I had done some kind of dance regularly as a child because I went through a period where I felt extremely self conscious of my body, almost afraid of moving it in front of others, awkward and ill at ease. Dancing more might have helped that, and at least would have gotten rid of a lot of the stress and tension I was holding everywhere to help me feel more free.

    Gymnastics or ice skating. Never done ice skating, but did gymnastics as a child and young teen.

    Edit: Actually I wish I were a contortionist.

    A miracle.

    Gymnastics. I am fascinated by the story of Elena Mukhina, a Russian gymnast who was rendered quadrapelegic because her trainer pressured her into what was the hardest gymnastics move at the time(the Thomas Salto). Elena even knew that she'd hurt herself badly if she tried to move, but the pressure got to her. I should be turned off by that, but luckily the Thomas Salto has been banned since then. When I watch gymnastics, the moves are so satisfying and there's a sense of freedom about the way they move their bodies. I would love to be as flexible as them. Archery is another one, probably because I can imagine myself being a ranger(and accuracy is just so satisfying).

    Wrestling is the first that comes to mind. I just wish I were a pro at any sort of fighting style, though. I really like grappling and groundwork in general. I think it's practical and useful if I were to get into a physical altercation of any sort. I also don't really care about the beauty of some sports, nor do I like cardio very much, so I think it's a good fit to my interests. I wish I were good at it my whole life but better late than never.

    When I was a kid, I used to wish I was a good swimmer because it looked cool in the Olympics. I have a little less interest in it now, though. I'd like to be adequate in it someday.

    Fishing. Like at the professional level. I love to fish and if I was good enough to make money at it - I'd do that in a second. Also curling - it's so fucking hard to be good at it. I would like to be good at both of these forever.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I for some reason as a child who never watched soccer loved soccer balls and wanted to be a soccer player.

    However, I would have made a better field goal unit. Every time I was to kick at the goal the ball went into someone else's yard. The neighbors got quite knowledgable of me due to this. XD

    I have been told I'd be a good track runner.

    I always thought figure skating looked absolutely amazing and wished I had the talent and capability. But I also wish I was flexible enough to actually do gymnastics or dancing of any sort.


    After all,
    How can you run from what is inside of you?

    I think I am good at table tennis. I have been playing it since childhood and it is a very cool sport, when they tell me that there is almost no need to move, I laugh. After all, it happened that I was completely sweaty for an hour of playing!
