List Rules These are all the sports that don't require being on a team.

Sometimes you have to make it on your own in this world, and individual sports are perfect for those times. While it is rewarding to be part of a great team, relying on nobody other than yourself can be just as powerful. Discipline, endurance, and perseverance are some of the greatest qualities people can learn from individual sports, whether it be from the greatest tennis players of all time or the best golfers of all time. Which solo sports are the best?

That's up to you to decide. This list is votable and rerankable, so feel free to vote up and add all of your favorite sports to do solo.
