Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 4
AIRED:
This weeks athletes were from; Nigeria, Great Britain, Japan and France. Challenges they took part in were; 200m: Backwards, around the bend. This game ended in style. With the Japanese athlete down, it gave Chima Ijeoma, from Nigeria, a great opportunity to come through.. but it was a mighty close thing. The British athlete almost had it, and despite problems around the bend, he forced himself into a winning position, but his ankle let him down and he collapsed literally metres from the finish, and although Ijeoma collapsed aswell, he'd already cleared the finish. Underwater Shot-putt: Athletes descend to the bottom of the pool, with their front foot inside the shot-put circle and throw the put as far as possible, without crossing the line. A difficult event and a mixture of techniques are involved - strength, explosive power, balance and breathing steadily.. if athletes don't take a deep breath before hitting the bottom they've no hope at all. The French athlete won this round, with an amazing 3.79m. High board - Long jump: Athletes climb onto a 3 metre platform, then they run and boing into the pool, over the tape, which moves further and further away... starting at 7m. The British athlete was doing well, until he injured his ankle and was forced to remove himself from the competition. The Nigerian athlete won overall. International Skids: Another sport poached from mischievous kids and Scandinavian drunks. Competitors must slide bar-foot along an icily slippery track as far and as quickly as possible, without losing their footing. The Nigerian athlete struggled with his technique and couldn't stay up for the first two attempts. He lost his balance at the most crucial moment on his third. If he managed to stay up he would have secured a place in the final. However, he fell, and competition became strong again. Individual Fall Down: The king of crazy sports. Defies human instinct and logic. Competitors must try to fall down faster than the other three guys. Success is measured by how quickly a competitor can bang his chin against the ground. Run as a process of elimination, the winner will end up doing this three times. Not one to try at home. The Japanese athlete actually won this game, managing to slam down first, all three times. Unfortunately, he didn't have enough points to win the game overall, and it was Nigeria's Chima Ijeoma who won a place in the final.moreless
