Las Vegas Finals 1
July 8

Over the last six weeks, we've seen the craziest obstacles ever known mow down athlete after athlete. Now only the top 100 remain - 15 from each bracket and 10 wild cards - to challenge the mother of all obstacles: Mount Midoriyama. But instead of going to Japan, the course is being brought to America.

No American has EVER conquered the course. Will this year see the first?

Las Vegas

Stage 1 will test speed and agility. Stage 2: strength and endurance. Stage 3: upper body strength. The Final Stage: one rope, one chance. Only those who complete a stage move on to the next.

The first stop of the road to total victory consists of the following obstacles...

- STEP SLIDER: Quad steps plus rope slider.
- ROLLING LOG: Grab the log and hang on.
- GIANT SWING: ... it's a giant swing.
- JUMPING SPIDER: Crawl between a spider wall
- HALFPIPE ATTACK: Run a wall, grab a rope.
- WARPED WALL: ... Fourteen feet.
- SPINNING BRIDGE: No mercy from these big balls.
- FINAL CLIMB: Grab the cargo net and run to the finish.

You have 2:10 to complete the course.

The fastest will run last. The slowest 28 will run tonight.
