They don't think its a sport because they have never tried it. If gymnastics is considered a sport than so is cheer. We do all the gymnast routines minus the beam, bars, and vaults. I'd like to see the people who think its not a sport throw a round-off back handspring into a full and then backflip up into a cupie before they open their mouths. And you're right, with other sports if you get hurt they get to sit down and relax, when we get hurt we have to work that much harder to finish the routine....break an arm, get a cast that day, back to practice tomorrow.
Lol well because, your just a bunch of girls that run in mini skirts, and mostly just smile all the time, bounce around like a bunch of monkeys and holler rhyming words over and over that stating the same thing, sports its when your rough, and think about crushing opponents, and plus i mean with sports you actually have a chance to join the team, the cheerleaders is all oh i want to throw up I'm so fat no your too fat to join the squad, and I'm a ****...get a life...sorry for this but cheer leaders make me mad, they act too snobby, but i bet your a nice person though! :)
I consider it a sport. It takes great athleticism to be able to do the stunts that cheerleaders do. Once you've watch Bring it On, who can deny it as a sport?
Penn State. Who do you want to cheer for in college?
