Abstract
The definition "extreme“ in relation to sport is performed in a hazardous environment and involves great risk. In the modern world of extreme sports, a number of factors require an athlete to have maximum concentration, cope with the stress and physical and emotional mobilisation capabilities. Extreme sports, or X sports, encompass a wide and growing range of activities from bungee jumping to skateboarding, snowboarding and white water kayaking. Common to all of these sports are risk-taking, pushing limits (physical and legal) and having fun.
