Are Cheerleaders Tough? You Betcha!

Who says cheerleaders aren’t tough? (Not me, by the way).

In fact, the high-flying flips, tricks and acrobatics they perform gives cheerleading one of the highest catastrophic injury rates of any sport in North America.

And here’s another example of cheerleader-toughness. It’s a quick video clip of a cheerleader tackling a football player (who is in full pads) in order to protect his squad-mates who were in a vulnerable pyramid formation.

He didn’t try to take the player out at the ankles either…he hit him head-on and took him to the ground.
