Cheerleaders might stand on the sidelines, but that doesn't mean they get a timeout from injuries. A new study reveals that cheerleading causes the most serious sport injuries among high school and college athletes. Of course, these injuries aren't caused by overly-enthusiastic hand clapping — rather all that flipping, jumping, and running can result in sprained ankles and broken limbs.
So it seems that girls today can choose between being a jock, a cheerleader, or both. Did you show your school spirit back in the day?
