The American Medical Association announced cheerleading should be considered a sport because of its rigors and risks.

The nation's largest doctors' group adopted that as policy Monday at its annual meeting in Chicago. AMA members said cheerleading is as rigorous as many other activities that high schools and the NCAA consider sports. This new policy comes with more safety measures for cheerleaders and proper training for their coaches.
