And we’re off!
Results: Danny flew through the course (although on the first half of the course he poked himself in the eye) unfortunately he got cocky and tried to do a tricky dismount on the Devil Steps and hit the water.
Results: Pavel, the second runner of tonight’s broadcast, became the first contestant to make it through to the second half. Unfortunately the Floating Monkeybars bested him and he hit the water.
Results: PJ had a pretty easy time heading across the first portion of the course and made it all look quite easy. Unfortunately, he too met his match on the Floating Monkeybars.
Results: After overpowering the first part of the course Sean became the first contestant to make their way to the Doorknob Arch. When he was 3/4 of the way across he decided to attempt the dismount as his arms were clearly getting tired and, unfortunately, he just missed the platform.
Results: Well, that was short lived. Luciano hit the water on just the third step of the first obstacle, the Quintuple Steps.
Results: Miles is the oldest person – at age 56 – to ever qualify for City Finals. He’s also a four time Olympic Gymnastics team coach, which is pretty impressive! Unfortunately the Snake Crossing got Miles and he slipped just as he reached the end.
Results: Holy. Moly. Jamie got all the way to the top of the Invisible Ladder and with 2 feet left… he couldn’t do it anymore and his arms gave out. BUT the good news is that he – far and away – has made it further in the course than anyone else thus far, so he has probably sealed a spot in the next round.
Results: This guy is absolutely flying through the course – and in just six minutes and 44 seconds became the first person to reach the top of the Invisible Ladder (and made it look easy!) and is on to the next round!
