Episode Summary

Episode 6
Heat 6's athletes were; Jeremy Cox (Britain) Slawomir Rybazyk (Germany) Milek Jivens (USA) and Spencer Ellis (Jamaica) This weeks events were: 200m Under Hurdles: Athletes must dip under a series of 10 hurdles set along the track. They must pass under all the hurdles, or they will be disqualified. Although the Jamaican competitor won this event, he knocked one of his hurdles down and carried on running. Meaning Jives, from America, won, coming in shortly after Ellis. Underwater Shot-put: 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. The German athlete won this event, with an amazing 3.83m. Water Jump: Athletes must run, spring over the bar and into the water. If they knock the bar down, they're disqualified. The German athlete also won this round, using a gymnast-like sumersault technique. Slalom Run: Just like the skiers do at the Winter Olympics, but this event is attacked on foot via a grassy slope. This event was wom by Germanys Slawomir Rybazyk, his third win in a row. His time came in at 38.54 seconds. Headlong Jump: Much like the long traditional jump, but competitors are required to land in the sandpit on their stomach. Feet are not allowed to touch the sand before the torso and distance is measured from the furthest outreached hand. Eye goggles are a must have. With the German athlete and America's Milek almost head-to-head in their final attempts, pressure was on. Even more so after the German athlete's last attempt measured in at 8.23m. However, the Jives pulled it off with ease, and his distance was a whopping 8.39m, placing him in the final.moreless
