Episode Summary

Episode 7
Heat 7's athletes: Michael Weeks (Great Britain) Andrew Wilson (South Africa) Adam Horder (Australia) Shinya Nishitani (Japan) This weeks events were: Backstroke Tug of War: Two swimmers are joined by a rope. On the whistle each must attempt to pull the other over the line dividing their area. The African athlete won this by changing his technique, while his opponent struggle to survive. Shot-put Sprint: Athlete must run as fast as possible for 100metres whilst throwing a 5k shot. The British athlete won this event with a time of 28.71 seconds. 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. Although Weeks almost secured full points in this event his left thigh snapped when he made his second-to-last attempt, giving Andrew Wilson the full points. 10G Human Slalom: Just like the skiers do at the Winter Olympics, but this event is attacked on foot via a grassy slope. The Australian athlete won this event, with a time of 40.21. 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. A great triump for Adam Horder, who won this event and a place in the final. He failed to make it last year.moreless
