Seems legit. Maybe some skiing instead of golf, but it's questionable.

No handball seems pretty strange...

Plus Formula 1 more popular than Volleyball, Hockey, or Boxing :mumble: i don't really believe that

Top 5 would be pretty possible if not for cricket.

How is it strange to see F1 is more popular than volleyball or especially ice hockey or boxing? :d 

 

F1 seems to have large numbers of fans worldwide, also in countries without a major driver, whereas apart from Brazil I wouldn't know a country where volleyball is extremely popular and the same thing goes for ice hockey (not Brazil, but Canada and obviously Czechoslovenia). F1 being more popular than boxing worldwide seems like an easy guess for me. 

 

I also doubt athletics would be this high...it doesn't seem like a sport with a real big fan base :p I mean, everyone knows Usain Bolt, but I wonder how many people there are who could mention 2-3 top athletes in half of the disciplines. 

 

Basically, my opinion of these 11: F1 is too low, athletics is too high, cricket is too high but looking at the numbers it's correct I guess :d

Which other sports allow 200+ participants/sets such a low bar for entry in World Cup stages, one could also ask :evil:
