-# Officially, officially, officially!
We scoured the globe to find three record-breaking gladiators.
In every show, they will attempt to break a record
that you can try at home.
They are officially competitive!
Representing the UK is...
Last series, he broke two records
and, this time, he's hankering for more.
-Are you feeling confident?
Representing Japan is mild-mannered Cherry Oshataki.
He loves breaking records
almost as much as he loves wearing silver underpants.
Last, but by no means least, is the pocket rocket US Ray,
the man who holds the record of all records -
backflipping into a pair of trousers.
Previously, the challenge for our free record-teers
was to move as much water as possible with their hands
in 30 seconds.
They all produced valiant efforts.
Well, some of them did...
Get it in the tube, yeah?!
..but Cherry was victorious and got himself a new world record, to boot.
First blood to Japan.
Today's high-octane challenge is a high-flying contest
and we start in the USA,
as our warriors go head-to-head in a battle of...
US Ray is used to breaking acrobatic records.
But can he do it for America today?
Can he be a superstar star jumper?
I caught up with my man for a motivational pep talk.
It seems like the star jumps are tailor-made for you, US Ray.
Do you think you have this in the bag?
Be honest. We're a team, come on.
-I got this in the bag.
-You got it?
Even though it's just a star jump, can anything go wrong?
Something can go wrong.
It may not be a physical thing, but, a lot of these things,
it is more mental than physical. It's what you tell your body to do.
For me, it's more just staying focused.
If there is anybody I know who's got focus, it's you.
We've got this in the bag. US Ray, get this record. Good luck, brother.
For a star jump to be valid, the back needs to be straight.
The arms must also be straight.
And the legs must be wide apart.
Like a star!
Remember, you can do this at home.
Just do me a favour, don't do it near the TV.
Time for US Ray to get it done for the USA.
Three, two, one, go!
Look at that speed! I promise we did not speed this up.
We can slow it down, though.
Wow! Plenty of star jump from the Land of Stars and Stripes.
Come on, US Ray.
US Ray! US Ray!
CROWD CHANTS "US RAY!"
SPEEDED UP CHANTING: US Ray! US Ray!
Come on, Ray, let's go, come on! Keep it going, Ray, you can do it.
He's got to be getting tired now, but what amazing technique.
-Yeah, all right. Whoo! US RAY PANTS
I think I got tired just watching you.
We will find out how many jumps Ray did in a moment.
He looked very fast, but then he is a natural athlete.
Sizzling Steve in the UK is not.
Come on, superstar, you can do this.
Both he and Mr Cherry have their work cut out.
It's number one!
And they're off. The current record is 70 star jumps in a minute.
Can they beat it?
A thing of near beauty.
Near, but not quite.
Has Steve read the rules? They don't look like proper star jumps to me.
'Oh, no, disaster for Sizzling Steve!'
Only 30 seconds in and the Sizzler has fizzled.
But Mr Cherry is giving it his all
and I'm helping out by laughing at him.
His star jumps are not exactly graceful,
but what he lacks in ability, he makes up for in enthusiasm.
Remember, straight arms, back and legs, Mr Cherry!
He's getting tired. His technique has deserted him.
-MR CHERRY SHOUTS
-He can always rely on my support.
So who has won, and do we have a new world record?
In third place, no surprises, it's the UK.
Sizzling Steve's jumps were all disqualified.
Sorry, Steve, but that was useless.
In second place was
-Japan with just 12 legal star jumps.
Sadly, Mr Cherry's back was not straight enough
for most of his efforts, so they weren't counted.
That makes US Ray the clear winner
of this officially competitive challenge.
But has he done enough to break the world record?
The record to beat today was 70 jumps.
Your attempt had the complete total of...
..77 jumps, so you've just achieved a new Guinness world record!
All right, US Ray, that's more than one star jump every second.
That puts him level with Mr Cherry after two challenges.
The boys will be back to fight it out next time in Officially Competitive.
