I don't play team sports because I always underestimate the other players' stupidity, so I stick to diving, which I competed in, and cycling. I also do some weight lifting.

I competed for 4 years in a type of racing sport, the last two at an expert level (against would-be pros, if the sport were big enough for that). I stopped competing so that I could focus more on everything else, but I still practice it every couple days as a routine and as a stress-reducer. The sport is so niche that people googling it might find me right here, so that's as specific about it as I'm going to get. Biggest achievement was 3rd place out of about 50 racers on a legendary race course. I impressed the veteran champs of the sport, which is about as cool as it gets.

I took a gymnastics class as a kid, as well as tennis lessons, but never did compete in either sport. I also had swimming lessons as well growing up, but never joined a team or anything. The competitive sports I've done were rowing for a year in college, and martial arts. I ended up quitting rowing after the first year because there was one teammate who was a real b*#@ and there was no way we'd have gotten along. I'm still doing the martial art, as well as archery competitively. I did do fencing in college, but there was no longer a team to compete in, so I did it for the fun. The university decided to spend the funds on the basketball team as they made the playoffs a few times.

I also play Quidditch once a month, but that's just for fun.
