Don’t judge a book by its cover—or a backwards baseball hat wearer to be a skateboarder.
Men’s Health correspondent Tony Xie took a trip out to California to the Red Bull performance camp, where sponsored athletes of all types had congregated. Red Bull has an impressive roster of athletes in diverse categories—from acrobatic flying to wingsuit flying—so it’s not always easy to ID who plays what sport by appearances and demeanor alone. In this Q&A game, Xie chats with a slew of elite athletes and speculates what kind of sport they play.
During the often humorous exchanges, Xie also pokes and prods the athletes to divulge what some common misconceptions of the sports they play are (“we’re wild and reckless” said one snowboarder), how long they’ve been practicing their sport, if they’re afraid of heights, and more. Check out the video and see how many you can guess correctly. Spoiler alert: Xie struggled with quite a few, but managed to get some insight on these pro athletes’ favorite workouts and tricks, too.
Watching all these athletes talk about their craft just has us itching to hit up a local mountain biking trail or crank out some runs on our snowboard. For the time being, we’ll just check out these sports documentaries on Netflix so we can steal the remote from our partner and their Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 2 marathon. For more game show style fun, check out the previous installment of Guessing Gains, when we played the game with pro wrestlers.
