Could Mountain unicycling become the next big extreme sport

Hi everyone,

I am at college taking A levels and I am doing the Extended project qualification (EPQ) this allows me to take any subject and write a 5000 word anylitical report on it i have chosen to do:

Could Mountain unicycling become the next big extreme sport

if anyone has any statistics on the growth of Muni or the start of competitive unicycling (UNICON) or the International Unicycling Federation (IUF) or how it started or the increase in participation.

please post bellow it would really help me out (i currently have 200 words done and need to have 3000 done in about 3 weeks)

or if you knows of any useful links/references even if not mentioned above just anything you think could be helpfull.

Thank you so much,

Sam

I gave a speech in my class about unicycling, I don't know if any of the sources I used can help you out but here's the one that might. Sadly I found that there is very little documentation on our sport.

There's a ton of documentation, depending on what your definition is. The most searchable of it is right here. I'm happy to edit or offer suggestions, but not to do your homework for you.

I would also call the thousands of MUni videos found on youtube and vimeo "documentation" that MUni is an extreme sport! I've contributed a few myself!

You're right, but for what I did quoting people on this forum wasn't going to cut it. Maybe it's different for Sam though.
