Eighty percent of the high sprains that occurred happened during athletics, as did 64 percent of the inner sprains. High-contact, high-impact sports accounted for most injuries, with top offenders for high sprains in men being sprint football, men's team handball, soccer, and basketball; for women, the highest-risk sports for high sprains were intercollegiate volleyball, followed by basketball and soccer. Inner sprains occurred most frequently during men's rugby, gymnastics, and soccer. Reuter's Health and Anne HardingThe study also showed that there were more injuries when the person was overweight showing a difference between a 26 Body Mass Index (BMI) verses a 24 BMI.
