    it looks a lot like the show Extreme Obstacle Course Challenge, they used to play it on Spike, but these obstacles are a thousand times more extreme than they were on that show...that`s fu.cking insane

    Yeah, I remember watching a few episodes of The Viking as well. This same guy almost beat another version of The Viking when I watched him.
    He ran out of time and was only 5 feet away from that big red button.

    "Extreme Obstacle Course Challenge"?
    I thought it was Most Extreme Elimination Challenge...?
    Anyway, indeed this is reminiscent of that show, but far more... well, extreme. XD

    Of course it was staged! Its a TV show! People spend years practicing and building similar courses in their backyards just for the chance to win the tournament.
    The show is Ninja Warrior and its shown on G4 regularly. The one shown was the only time someone has finished all 4 stages and beaten the whole thing. The tournament has probably happened around 20 times, and it has only been completed by one person once. I`d say that makes the course sound a little difficult, no?

    "How freaking awsome was that did the spray make em stick?"
    i think it might be to ease the pressure on his hads, so its doesnt feel like thousands of needles sticking into his skin.
    "Dude. Totally staged. Looked like WWF obstacle course. He expected every obstacle. He musta practiced a million times. Not impressed."

    A few background details: as mentioned, he`s a fisherman, and became only the second person to finish all four stages of Ninja Warrior (Japanese name: SASUKE).

    There have been 17 Ninja Warrior competitions over the course of approximately 8 years.

    American Olympians have been among the competitors in SASUKE events, including gymnasts the Hamm twins and decathlete Paul Terek.

    Viking is cool, but I have a personal preference towards Ninja Warrior. Ninja Warrior is more straightforward athleticism, and gives you a back story to each competitor- something that humanizes the competitors and makes them easier to get behind.
