Well it does like a strange cup doesn't it. But a Belgian Television channel cam up with this great idea.
During this lockdown, all sport competitions came to a hold. So they came up with an idea for a competition in which all type of sporters do have a chance!
The battle area is a container. This container is on the back of a truck, which rides from house to house. After each atlete the container is completely desinfected and rides to the next competitor. It was hard to set up a set of disciplines which would give all participants a chance of winning.
This is the idea they came up with:
- 1500 m running
- 1000 m rowing
- 3000 m cycling
- benchpress (kg / 2)
- monkey bars (each bar is 1 sec)
- golf (meters / 3)
- shooting (each hit target 10 sec)
The time of the first 3 disciplines are added together and with the other disciplines one can win time which will be distracted from the total time.
At the moment already 8 competitors have completed their container cup and in a sportless period this is some great television.
In total there are 40 competitors. 32 pro athletes and 8 television stars.
Well it is better than nothing!
