Episode Summary

Episode 9
Backsprint Athletes start in the official reverse set position. They run backwards to the finish. World Record: 37.53 seconds. Winner: Lazlo Fasekas. His time came in at 37.83 seconds. International Skids Athletes must make the great, big, long skid down the track. But if they fall over, their skid is counterfiet. World Record: 44.05 metres Winner: Kenji Watanabe. He beat the World Record and the new one stands at 44.18m. 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. World Record: 29.35 seconds. Winner: Brian Clarke. His time was 30.66 seconds. 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. World Record: 4.35m Winner: Kengo Shiomi. He threw his put 4.21m. Water Jump Athletes must run, spring over the bar and into the water. If they knock the bar down, they're disqualified. World Record: 1.70m Winner: William Pobie. The man who has a fear of water won this event and set a new World Record. It now stands at 1.80m. Pobie attempted to make the 1.90m jump, but failed. 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. Winner: Kengo Shiomi. William Pobie landed first, but his chin missed the target. Head Long Dive: 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. World Record: 8.62m. Chima Ijeoma dived the furthest in this event, but Adam Horder had the most points overall, making him International King of Sports 2002.moreless
