# Officially, officially, officially... Amazing! #

0:00:020:00:05

All aboard!

0:00:060:00:08

Hello, and welcome to the Officially Amazing railway.

0:00:080:00:11

This elegant engine is the Shires Express

0:00:110:00:14

and today it's on track to bring you a first-class journey -

0:00:140:00:18

destination Recordsville! HORN BLASTS

0:00:180:00:21

Full steam ahead!

0:00:210:00:24

Here's what's on today's choo-choo-pendous show...

0:00:240:00:26

Big Z and Thor are back!

0:00:290:00:32

But what tests of their muscular might await?

0:00:320:00:35

And our courageous warriors wrestle with some tiny cubes of doom.

0:00:360:00:41

But first, it's a family affair.

0:00:420:00:45

Woohoo!

0:00:480:00:49

Ah.

0:00:490:00:50

-Ah!

-SHE LAUGHS

0:00:500:00:53

Introducing the magically multi-talented Ramos family.

0:00:530:00:57

There's...

0:00:570:01:00

(Although this is a perfectly executed front-landing manoeuvre.)

0:01:110:01:14

And...

0:01:140:01:17

..who, today, will be attempting to break his own world record

0:01:170:01:21

for the...

0:01:210:01:22

Let's meet the family with your host...

0:01:260:01:28

erm, me.

0:01:280:01:30

Is this what you wear all the time?

0:01:300:01:31

Is this the normal Ramos family routine?

0:01:310:01:33

-Only for shows, Ben.

-Right, OK.

0:01:330:01:35

-So, not round the house?

-Not to go shopping in, no.

0:01:350:01:38

Jordan, this is a very technically-involved record.

0:01:380:01:41

How exactly do you go about training for it?

0:01:410:01:43

When you're there on the trampoline, you have to just think of one thing

0:01:430:01:46

and that's putting the basketball into the hoop.

0:01:460:01:49

Your mind has be in one place

0:01:490:01:51

because if your mind's everywhere, you know, it might not happen.

0:01:510:01:54

How are the nerves right now?

0:01:540:01:56

I'm really nervous about it but I've got every confidence in Jordan.

0:01:560:02:00

He's very focused in his strength, you know,

0:02:000:02:02

he's prepared for it, so, I'm pretty sure he will break it.

0:02:020:02:06

Jordan, Ramos family, best of luck for today.

0:02:060:02:08

I can't wait to see you attempt this record.

0:02:080:02:11

Here are the rules.

0:02:110:02:13

An Olympic-sized trampoline must be used,

0:02:130:02:16

the ball must be dunked - not thrown - into the hoop

0:02:160:02:20

and Jordan is aiming to beat his own world record of...

0:02:200:02:23

This record was previously held by German athlete Thilo Schwarck,

0:02:250:02:30

who we met back in series one,

0:02:300:02:32

where we also witnessed another equally athletic sportsman

0:02:320:02:36

proving just how hard this event is.

0:02:360:02:38

CRASHING

0:02:380:02:40

Jordan is just going through his warm-up routine.

0:02:400:02:43

Remember - he's had years of training for this dangerous record.

0:02:430:02:47

Do not try this yourself.

0:02:470:02:49

-Oh!

-Yeah. It was just sideways a bit.

0:02:490:02:52

Mark, it's over to you.

0:02:520:02:54

OK, Jordan, in your own time.

0:02:540:02:56

We've come to this hall because it has the height needed

0:02:570:02:59

for Jordan to be able to generate enough bounce

0:02:590:03:02

to propel himself over 10 metres to that hoop.

0:03:020:03:05

That's about the length of a double-decker bus.

0:03:050:03:09

Oh!

0:03:090:03:11

Well, clearly, he felt something wasn't right with his bounce,

0:03:110:03:15

so, wisely, he decided against going through with that attempt.

0:03:150:03:19

But now he's ready to go again.

0:03:190:03:20

OK, Jordan, in your own time.

0:03:200:03:23

And he's quickly bouncing to a great height.

0:03:230:03:26

Now it's just about when Jordan believes he's ready

0:03:270:03:29

to launch himself into that super slam dunk.

0:03:290:03:32

What a leap!

0:03:360:03:37

THEY CHEER

0:03:410:03:44

Oh, yes! Unbelievable.

0:03:440:03:46

A soaring, stunning slam dunk.

0:03:460:03:49

Just look at that elevation and the enormous distance he covers.

0:03:500:03:54

He almost flew to that hoop.

0:03:540:03:56

To meet the basket at exactly the right angle for the dunk

0:03:570:04:00

takes almost unfathomable precision - not to mention courage.

0:04:000:04:05

So, we know he rocketed a dizzying distance of 10.05 metres,

0:04:050:04:10

but was that a valid dunk?

0:04:100:04:12

In order for it to be a valid attempt,

0:04:120:04:14

the ball has to be slam dunked into the hoop

0:04:140:04:17

and it can't leave Jordan's hands,

0:04:170:04:20

and I can reveal that the ball...

0:04:200:04:22

did not leave his hands,

0:04:220:04:24

so it is a new Guinness World Record!

0:04:240:04:26

THEY CHEER

0:04:260:04:28

Joyful celebrations, then, for the rip-roaring Ramos family.

0:04:280:04:32

But who will be celebrating and Italy with Al and Haruka?

0:04:320:04:36

Whoa!

0:04:390:04:40

A-a-a-ah!

0:04:400:04:41

Ugh.

0:04:430:04:44

Ladies and gentlemen - Zydrunas and Thor!

0:04:440:04:48

We've seen them ferrying fridges

0:04:510:04:53

and laying waste to washing machines.

0:04:530:04:55

-HARUKA:

-But this is the decider

0:04:570:04:59

as these two super strong men attempt the world record for the...

0:04:590:05:03

The current record stands at eight metres.

0:05:060:05:08

And is held by Thor.

0:05:080:05:10

These kegs weigh a hefty...

0:05:100:05:12

The bar has been set at 8.05 metres

0:05:140:05:17

and seems to be manned

0:05:170:05:18

by the disgruntled cousins of the Super Mario Bros.

0:05:180:05:21

Cheer up, man!

0:05:210:05:23

Big Z goes first.

0:05:230:05:25

Yah!

0:05:250:05:27

Oh! That could have been nasty.

0:05:270:05:30

Not only did he fail to throw the keg over the bar,

0:05:300:05:33

he almost forgot to get out of the way when it came back down again.

0:05:330:05:36

Now, can Thor beat his own record?

0:05:380:05:40

-AUDIENCE:

-Ohh!

0:05:430:05:44

Oh, so close.

0:05:440:05:46

He hit the bar.

0:05:460:05:48

Hit it? He almost shattered it!

0:05:480:05:51

Big Z needs to up his game.

0:05:510:05:53

And it's high, but it's not high enough.

0:05:540:05:57

So, he hasn't taken Thor's record.

0:05:570:06:00

But can Thor out-Thor Thor?

0:06:000:06:03

-Yah!

-It's over!

0:06:030:06:05

In-keg-ible! 8.05 metres.

0:06:050:06:08

"Thor" real, Thor has taken this series two to one.

0:06:080:06:12

Now, it's time for three slightly smaller record-breaking giants.

0:06:120:06:16

Shh!

0:06:180:06:19

Uh-oh.

0:06:260:06:27

Once upon a time, three gallant princes roamed the Earth

0:06:290:06:33

attempting world records you can try at home.

0:06:330:06:37

Their names...

0:06:370:06:39

from Japan, Prince Charming, Mr Cherry,

0:06:390:06:43

from the States, Prince Radiant, US Ray,

0:06:430:06:47

and from the UK, the Prince of Steves, Sizzling Steve.

0:06:470:06:53

But this is no fairy story.

0:06:530:06:56

This is a thrilling 15-part serial.

0:06:560:06:59

See? Fortified.

0:07:070:07:09

Oh.

0:07:090:07:10

Previously on Officially Competitive...

0:07:100:07:13

Stevie boy crushed the competition and some balloons underfoot,

0:07:130:07:18

leaving everyone dead level

0:07:180:07:19

on the leaderboard.

0:07:190:07:21

So, who will take the lead after today's event?

0:07:210:07:24

That means picking up a line of dice with two fingers - like this...

0:07:280:07:32

-Can someone get these please?

-And cut!

-Thank you.

0:07:320:07:35

Pathetic, Ben.

0:07:350:07:36

Here are the team talks.

0:07:360:07:38

Now, Steve, any two fingers can be used for this record,

0:07:380:07:41

and I imagine the normal man

0:07:410:07:43

would use his two index fingers,

0:07:430:07:45

but I know you're not a normal man, Steve.

0:07:450:07:47

Which fingers are you using?

0:07:470:07:49

Well, this time, I am a normal man.

0:07:490:07:50

I will be using my two index fingers.

0:07:500:07:52

Incredible.

0:07:520:07:54

Unorthodox by being orthodox. That's the Sizzler!

0:07:540:07:57

Well, Sizzler's ready to go.

0:07:580:08:00

Is Ray?

0:08:000:08:01

For him, those tiny numbered cubes usually add up to dice-appointment.

0:08:010:08:07

Ray, let's be honest.

0:08:070:08:09

Dice records are... not your cup of tea.

0:08:090:08:12

So, how are we going to make sure

0:08:120:08:13

that we take this championship?

0:08:130:08:16

Make it my cup of coffee.

0:08:160:08:17

I like it.

0:08:170:08:18

Show me the fingers you're going to be using.

0:08:180:08:20

HE IMITATES GUN

0:08:200:08:23

Al doesn't look convinced.

0:08:260:08:28

Will Cherry-san make sure Ray feels the pinch?

0:08:280:08:31

How are you going to prevent the dice from falling?

0:08:310:08:35

-DUBBED:

-Get a lot of this.

0:08:370:08:39

Power. Finger power.

0:08:390:08:43

Electric stuff from Team Japan!

0:08:440:08:47

Now the rules.

0:08:470:08:48

MR CHERRY FARTS

0:08:480:08:50

Competitors first have 30 seconds to arrange their line of dice.

0:08:500:08:55

With one finger at each end, the dice must then be lifted

0:08:550:08:58

to a height of 46 centimetres

0:08:580:09:00

and held there for five seconds.

0:09:000:09:03

And the record to beat, currently held by Italy's Silvio Sabba,

0:09:030:09:07

is 40 pinched dice.

0:09:070:09:09

All right, Ray, it's time for you to step up.

0:09:090:09:11

-How's that, Al?

-OK.

0:09:140:09:16

-SHANTHA:

-Three...two...one...

0:09:160:09:19

-Go!

-Come on, Ray, let's go. You've got this.

0:09:190:09:21

Now Ray's at the right height,

0:09:210:09:22

he begins his first of the two attempts everyone's been granted.

0:09:220:09:27

He has just 30 seconds to build the longest row of dice...

0:09:270:09:30

-Three...

-..he thinks he can safely pinch-pick.

-..two...one... stop.

0:09:300:09:34

That's a pretty long line.

0:09:340:09:36

He now has to lift them nearly half a metre marked by that white pole.

0:09:360:09:41

Can he keep them together

0:09:440:09:45

for five long seconds?

0:09:450:09:47

Drop.

0:09:490:09:50

That's my man!

0:09:500:09:52

Ray's got one successful lift.

0:09:520:09:54

Maybe now he can go big

0:09:540:09:55

and break that awesome record of 40.

0:09:550:09:58

Two...one...stop.

0:09:580:10:01

That's a colossal column of cubes!

0:10:010:10:03

It looks about a third longer than his first attempt.

0:10:040:10:09

So far, so good.

0:10:090:10:11

You relax there.

0:10:110:10:12

Hold your breath, Ray!

0:10:120:10:14

Stay there.

0:10:140:10:15

Oh, no!

0:10:150:10:16

Agh!

0:10:160:10:18

Dice-may for Ray!

0:10:190:10:22

His horizontal tower collapses into a pile of cubic rubble.

0:10:220:10:27

He was just fractions of a second from a huge score of 30 dice.

0:10:270:10:33

Can Mr Cherry better Ray's valid total?

0:10:330:10:36

Go!

0:10:360:10:37

This is looking pretty similar to Ray's successful line of dice.

0:10:400:10:45

Stop.

0:10:450:10:46

-MR CHERRY:

-OK.

0:10:460:10:47

But numbers mean nothing if you can't lift the dice.

0:10:470:10:51

Look at his hands!

0:10:510:10:53

A clear tremor visible as the gravity of the situation -

0:10:530:10:56

the sheer tension of the moment -

0:10:560:10:58

threatens to overwhelm this proud champion.

0:10:580:11:01

His record in training was just five.

0:11:030:11:06

This would be huge!

0:11:060:11:07

You may place them down.

0:11:070:11:09

He's done it!

0:11:090:11:11

THEY CHEER

0:11:110:11:13

We should never have doubted the great man.

0:11:130:11:15

Nice to meet you! Woo!

0:11:150:11:19

That's one valid lift.

0:11:190:11:21

Will he now make an assault on that record?

0:11:210:11:24

He's definitely going for it.

0:11:240:11:27

Look at this enormous snake of dice!

0:11:270:11:30

Surely, he can't lift this lot up.

0:11:300:11:32

If anyone can, Cherry-san can.

0:11:320:11:36

Come on, dice!

0:11:360:11:38

Er, I guess no-one can.

0:11:380:11:40

-Come on, dice!

-But look - he's pressing on

0:11:400:11:42

-even without the dice.

-Come on! Come on, dice!

0:11:420:11:45

That is the very definition of not knowing when you're beaten.

0:11:450:11:48

-Yah!

-Aaagh!

0:11:480:11:51

Two similar successful pinches from Cherry and Ray

0:11:510:11:55

but can Steve judge this right and beat them?

0:11:550:11:58

-Go!

-Yes, going third, the Sizzler may be holding all the cards.

0:11:580:12:02

The question is, can he hold all the dice?

0:12:020:12:05

Because this challenge is about holding dice.

0:12:050:12:07

-Stop.

-Not cards.

0:12:070:12:09

It's a very quick lift.

0:12:090:12:12

But it's also a very wobbly line.

0:12:120:12:16

Agh!

0:12:160:12:18

Dice-aster!

0:12:200:12:23

And there we can see the fateful fracture in his queue of cubes.

0:12:230:12:27

-Go.

-Steve has just one go left.

0:12:320:12:36

He can't afford any mistakes.

0:12:360:12:38

It's all or nothing.

0:12:380:12:40

Stop touching the dice.

0:12:400:12:41

He's going big again.

0:12:410:12:43

Look at it.

0:12:430:12:45

That's a really lengthy line.

0:12:450:12:48

This is a huge risk.

0:12:480:12:49

Aagh!

0:12:510:12:52

Steve's dicey dreams have been reduced

0:12:540:12:56

to nothing more than dicey debris.

0:12:560:12:59

Much like his line of dice, he looks broken.

0:12:590:13:03

Let's get the verdict.

0:13:030:13:05

Shantha, do we have a world record?

0:13:050:13:07

-No.

-AUDIENCE:

-Aw!

0:13:070:13:09

Never mind, there's still the all-important

0:13:100:13:12

Officially Competitive point to play for.

0:13:120:13:14

So, Shantha, what are our results?

0:13:140:13:16

Steve, you were disqualified as you failed to complete either attempt.

0:13:160:13:22

So, the winner, by one, with 22 dice is...

0:13:220:13:28

-..Mr Cherry.

-Yeah!

0:13:300:13:33

Dice number one!

0:13:330:13:36

Ready? Number one!

0:13:360:13:39

Number two.

0:13:390:13:40

So, with just two events left,

0:13:400:13:43

Mr Cherry once again tops the table.

0:13:430:13:45

Can he be pegged back?

0:13:450:13:47

Find out next time

0:13:470:13:49

as our contenders collide

0:13:490:13:50

on a ball-bouncing battleground.

0:13:500:13:54

Join us then for more gasp-inducing greatness like this...

0:13:540:13:58

# Well, if you ask me, the Ramoses might be

0:13:580:14:01

# The most athletic family we've seen

0:14:010:14:04

# And Jordan was our man

0:14:040:14:05

# With his longest slam dunk from a trampoline

0:14:050:14:09

# Who would pay the price

0:14:090:14:10

# For trying to pinch-pick too many dice?

0:14:100:14:12

# Well, Steve got a double deep queue

0:14:120:14:14

# But Cherry won with 22

0:14:140:14:16

# And Thor beat Big Z

0:14:160:14:17

# With his mighty keg throwing

0:14:170:14:21

# But here come the rubbish bits...

0:14:210:14:23

# The outtakes! #

0:14:230:14:25

Over to you, Sh...antha.

0:14:280:14:30

THEY LAUGH

0:14:300:14:34

I told you I can't do it.
