Episode Summary

Episode 3
This weeks athletes from Jamaica, Britian, USA and France enter themselves in bizzare sporting events in attempt to join Kengo Shiomi (Japan) and Laszlo Fazekas (Hungary) in the final to win the title "International King of Sports." This weeks challenges were; Short Track Sprint: The 100m sprint, completed by lapping a circular 10m track ten times. If the athletes go out of the circle points are not added. The French athlete won this round with a time of 31.7 seconds. Shot-put Sprint: Athletes must run as fast as possible while throwing a 5kilo shot on a 100m track. Only one lap is required, but both the athlete and his shot must pass the line, instead of one or the other. Water Dive: A high-jumping contest where competitors leap head-first over the bar and into a diving pool with the aid of a small springboard. The British athlete won this round and his highest leap was 170cm.. equal to the World Record. Slalom Run: Just like the skiers do at the Winter Olympics, but this event is atacked on foot via a grassy slope. The rugby playing Essex boy who represented Britain in this first round revolutionsed the event by wearing football studs. International Skids: Another sport poached from mischievous kids and Scandinavian drunks. Competitors must slide bare-foot along an icily slippery track as far and as quickly as possible. If athletes fall over their skid is counterfiet. All points counted, it was England's Brian Clarke who round the final round and the game overall, making him the first competitor from Britain to ever make it to the final in International King of Sports 25 year history. He entered last year, but failed to make it to the final.moreless
