Ninety athletes have
proven themselves worthy to challenge the city finals
stage of the competition. With one city left, 30 more
will soar miles above the Mile High City, while the rest
will just be... sore.
Civic Center Park
We begin with the standard six, four of
which are making their ANW debut tonight.
- QUINTUPLE STEPS: five steps, seven feet
between each one.
- ROLLING LOG: grab the log and hold on through three 360 degree
- ROTATING BRIDGE: run across before it turns and tumbles.
- JUMP HANG KAI: the next level in the classic Jump Hang... This time,
there are TWO cargo nets.
- GRIP HANG: traverse across three hanging planks.
- WARPED WALL: Fourteen feet, three tries.
As a reminder, it's win.... and in. Anyone who finishes the
qualifier moves on to the regional final and move one step closer to the
American Sasuke course in Las Vegas. If we have less than 30 complete,
the remaining spots go to the fastest and the furthest.
- Donovan Metoyer (26; Kansas City, MO;
college student) - FAIL Rotating Bridge... with one shoe
