I don't understand it either. In my mind, it counts because she did all the obstacles, unlike last year when she failed the Hedgehog. Maybe they just made that a rule, like how women have a longer time limit in Japan. Also, 15 people out of 48 competitors cleared Stage 2.
and seeing that David Campbell and Olivia Vivian are still in it!
As for that pipe slider, a lot of competitors are struggling with it as well as that hang climb. Even next week's spoilers have shown that David Campbell fell on the pipe slider. The real question is how far will Olivia Vivian go in Stage 3 and whether if she'll make history?
