About This Quiz

For most of us, when we think about sports, what immediately comes to mind is soccer, football, basketball, hockey, baseball or basically any other popular sport shown on television. However, there more than 30 sports in the Olympics. You'll probably never be able to try every sport, but you can make a guess about what you'd be good at by looking at the body types of the athletes who play at the highest level. 

For example, if you're close to seven feet tall and skinny as a toothpick, bobsled and Olympic weightlifting probably aren't the sports for you—but you may have a future as a high jumper, basketball player or volleyball player. On the flip side, if you're five feet tall, you may not have a future as a high jumper, but you might make a great horse jockey, Olympic weightlifter or wrestler. 

Just because you're not built like an Olympic gold medalist doesn't mean you can't love that sport. Even if you can barely swim a lap without drowning, you might be a swimming fanatic. Many people can't throw a tight spiral but live for Monday-night football. We bet we can easily guess you're favorite sport just by your answers to these 30 questions. Don't believe us? Then we'll prove it to you!
