It was actually an Olympic hurdler, and the guy was taking it seriously too. However, it wasn't a sprint, it was more of a brutal endurance thing that they did. I only caught a brief glimpse of it on TTC. It looked like they were jumping over these big water buckets surrounded in mud. Looked really, really brutal and messy, and Borg stayed in front of everyone else and didn't slow down for a second. He was a machine. He was actually a more finely tuned machine than Nadal, lighter and quicker and seemingly indestructible.
