ON TO BREAKTHROUGH & CONQUER WE GO, THE NEXT EVENT. THE WOMEN WILL START THINGS OFF. CAROLYN DEAN FIRST UP. SHE HAS A 5-POINT LEAD ON LYNN BELL AFTER ONE EVENT. DIAMOND WILL MAN BREAKTHROUGH.>>ONCE AGAIN, A CHANCE FOR THE CONTENDERS TO PICK UP 10 POINTS. HERE COMES CAROLYN, SEE WHAT KIND OF MOVE SHE MAKES ON DIAMOND. NOT MUCH OF ONE. SHE JUST BLAZED BY HER.>>DIAMOND’S STILL WAITING FOR THE MOVE. DIAMOND DOES A GOOD JOB OF GETTING UPFIELD AND GETTING UP ON HER TOES. SHE’S ALL SET FOR THE MOVE, BUT THERE ISN’T ANY. CAROLYN JUST ACCELERATES RIGHT INTO THE END ZONE WITH A BURSTIR MINIATURE FOOTBALL FIELD, AND IN THE CONQUER RING, IT WILL BE DIAMOND. FIRST UP FOR OUR CONTENDERS — JEANNINE MICHELETTI. JEANNINE TRAILING BETSY ERICKSON AFTER ONE EVENT 4-2. 5 POINTS FOR BEING SUCCESSFUL IN EACH SEGMENT, SO A POSSIBLE TOTAL OF 10.>>GLADIATOR, READY! [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>OH. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS THROUGH STORM’S HELMET CAM. JEANNINE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE A MOVE. NO MOVE THERE — BAM!GSTON, DESPITE THE FACT THAT
SHE TRAILS BY A BUNDLE, IS SHE’S EXCELLENT AT
BREAKTHROUGH & CONQUER, ESPECIALLY BREAKTHROUGH
WHERE SHE’S 2/0. [WHISTLE BLOWS] OOH, MAN! ZAP WITH THAT BIG FAKE
COULD’VE BROKEN
HER ANKLE. FURTHER DEMONSTRATION
OF LISA’S GREAT MOVES, AT THE EXPENSE OF ZAP. WE’RE LOOKING AT IT
THROUGH ZAP’S HELMET-CAM. ZAP HAD HER
DEAD TO RIGHTS, BUT SHE BIT
ON THAT LAST MOVE, SHE’S UP FIRST. SHE TRAILS PEGGY BY FOUR POINTS AFTER THREE EVENTS. AND WHAT AN ADDITION TO THE GLADIATOR TEAM THIS WOMAN HAS BEEN — JAZZ.>>COME ON.>>5’10”, 170 POUNDS, JAZZ WILL MAN BREAKTHROUGH. AND INSIDE THAT CONQUER RING, THE MIGHTY SIREN.>>AND HERE’S HOW THE SCORING WORKS — 5 POINTS IF YOU’RE SUCCESSFUL IN BREAKTHROUGH, 5 FOR CONQUER.>>LORI HOPING TO CALL UPON HER FIELD-HOCKEY EXPERIENCE AT LOCK HAVEN STATE UNIVERSITY. SHE MADE A MOVE. IT WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH. JAZZ DIDN’T GO FOR IT. NO POINTS IN BREAKTHROUGH. LOOR EXERCISE. SHE’LL BE INSIDE
THE CONQUER RING, AND LACE WILL HANDLE
BREAKTHROUGH. THEY’VE PUT OUT
AN ALL POI
CONTENDER, READY? COMPETED IN
THE OLYMPIC TRIALS IN BOTH 1984 AND 1988
AS A HEPTATHLETE, AND YOU CAN SEE WHY. LACE HAVING
THE PROBLEMS. YOU REMEMBER
WHAT HAPPENED WITH MELISSA. SHE WASN’T GOING
TO HAVE THAT HAPPEN AGAIN. INSTEAD, CHERYL,
WITH THE QUICK FEET, MAKES THE MOVE EARLY. SHE DOESN’T CLOSE THE GAP
AND HAS ROOM TO WORK. SCORE 5 FOR CHERYL WILSON.>>SO BETSY ERICKSON WILL TRY TO KEEP PACE, AND SHE, LIKE JEANNINE, WILL DRAW STORM HERE IN BREAKTHROUGH. BETSY ERICKSON…>>OOH! OH!>>…AGAIN GOING FOR THAT POWER MOVE. CONTENDERS ARE, IN THEORY, SUPPOSED TO MAKE A… FOOTBALL-LIKE MOVE, BUT INSTEAD, WE’VE SEEN CSONKA-LIKE BULL RUSHES.>>SHE DIDN’T MAKE ANY MOVE AT ALL, AND WHEN STORM PICKED HER UP, SHE DROVE HER HEAD RIGHT IN EMONSTRATHEIR RESOLVE IN BREAKTHROUGH
& CONQUER. SKY WILL BE INSIDE
THE CONQUER RING, DIAMOND IN BREAKTHROUGH. LOOK AT ONE
OF THE CONTENDERS, 27-YEAR-OLD
LISA LANGSTON
FROM ARLINGTON, TEXAS, WHERE SHE’S
A HIGH SCHOOL HEALTH AND PHYSICAL
EDUCATION TEACHER. A CHANCE
FOR THE CONTENDER TO PICK UP 10 POINTS. OOH. WHOA. DIAMOND NEVER
LAID A HAND ON HER. THOSE MONDAY NIGHT
FLAG FOOTBALL GAMES HAVE PAID OFF. YOU CAN’T TACKLE
A GHOST, MIKE. SHE GAVE HER
A BEAUTIFUL MOVE, AND DIAMOND
WENT FOR IT. THERE WAS NOTHING THERE
BUT AIR.>>Adamle: WELL, BREAKTHROUGH AND CONQUER IS UP NEXT, AND DONNA STUBBS, OUR FIRST CONTENDER, WOULD LOVE TO LET GEORGE DO IT AGAINST JAZZ. RESPECT HERE IN BREAKTHROUGH AND CONQUER. FOR THE GLADIATORS IN BREAKTHROUGH, IT IS JAZZ. HER RECORD — 3-1 IN THIS EVENT. IN THE CONQUER RING, IT IS SIREN.>>CONTENDERS, READY? GLADIATORS, READY? [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>Adamle: AGAIN, BREAKTHROUGH AND CONQUER, A TWO-PART EVENT. AGAIN, A PRETTY TENTATIVE MOVE OUT THERE. NOT SOMETHING THAT WOMEN ARE ACCUSTOMED TO DOING ALL THAT OFTEN — TUCKING A FOOTBALL UNDERNEATH THEIR ARM, AND ALSO GOING AGAINST SOMEONE LIKE JAZZ. NOW PEGGY O. SET TO GO.>>NO MESSING AROUND. THIS IS THE BIG GIRL. I’M JUST A LITTLE ZAPSTER.>>Adamle: A LITTLE ZAPSTER WITH THE POTENTIAL OF STOPPING PEGGY. LET’S SEE IF IT HAPPENS HERE. PEGGY A GREAT ATHLETE.>>OH, YOU –>>Malosky: OH, BEAUTIFUL MOVE.>>Adamle: SET ZAP UP PERFECTLY. ZAP CAN ONLY SMILE. SHE WAS FAKED OUT OF HER PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR. NOW LET’S SEE WHAT JULIE WOLFE CAN DO. ONCE AGAIN, JAZZ AND SIREN.>>GLADIATORS, READY? [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>Adamle: OH, A LITTLE SPIN MOVE, AND AGAIN, YOU GOT TO DO A LITTLE BETTER THAN THAT. TURNED HER BACK COMPLETELY ON JAZZ, THEN ALLOWED JAZZ TO CLOSE IN. NO POINTS IN BREAKTHROUGH FOR JULIE.>>Nitro: INTERESTING MOVE, BUT THE BEST WOMAN WON. AND AS A, JULIE, I CAN TELL YOU THIS IS A NO-NO. NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON A POTENTIAL TACKLER. JAZZ HADIN BREAKTHROUGH. IT.ED ELEKTRA WILL MAN
THE CONQUER RING. OR WILL GET HER CHANCE. A MEMBER
OF THE VOLLEYBALL AND TRACK AND FIELD TEAMS
AT RICE UNIVERSITY. HOPING TO SHINE HERE
IN BREAKTHROUGH. TRY ONE BIG MOVE. NICE, NICE GRAB
BY SIREN. ESSENTIALLY
WHAT SHE DID
TO KATY RAMSEY. ONLY KATY WAS ABLE
TO KIND OF SQUIRM FREE AND KEEP HER BALANCE. THE ELIMINATOR. KAREN UP FIRST. THE TWO GLADIATORS SHE HAS TO GET BY — SIREN IN THE CONQUER RING, BUT ICE FIRST IN BREAKTHROUGH.>>GLADIATORS, READY! [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>SHE JUST WINKED AT HER BOYFRIEND, VINCE. SHE’S PRETTY QUICK. YEAH! AND SHE USED THAT QUICKNESS TO GET ON TOP OF ICE QUICKLY. [ CROWD CHANTING, “WHOOP, THERE IT IS” ]CK A LOT OF PUNCH IN THAT 126 POUNDS. VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE. YOU RAN RIGHT THROUGH ICE, THEN YOU SURPRISED SIREN. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT BOTH OF THOSE. WE’VE GOT THEM ON THE BIG SCREEN. HERE’S THE TOUCHDOWN. TELL ME WHAT WAS HAPPENING.>>RIGHT NOW, I KNEW THAT THE GOAL LINE WAS CLOSE. I JUST HAD TO MAKE IT THROUGH. IF I HAD A QUICK ENOUGH MOVE ON HER, I COULD MAKE IT.>>THAT WA SIREN WILL BE
IN THE CONQUER RING. SHE’S GOT THE CROWD
HOPPING AGAIN. STORM WILL BE
IN BREAKTHROUGH. SHANNON WILLIAMS
UP FIRST. GLADIATORS, READY! A CHANCE TO PICK UP
5 POINTS IN BOTH EVENTS. NICE LITTLE MOVE. STORM KEPT HER EYE
CONCENTRATED ON SHANNON’S
BELT BUCKLE. DIDN’T GO FOR IT.
NO POINTS THERE. STORM, WITH GREAT POSITION,
LOOKING UPFIELD. THAT UPPER-BODY
STRENGTH AGAIN. JUST THROWS SHANNON OUT. NOW PORTION, AND THEN IT’S
ICE, ICE BABY– THERE SHE IS– IN THE CONQUER RING. THAT GRIM FACE
OF DETERMINATION IF SHE IS TO KEEP PACE. GLADIATORS, READY! [WHISTLE BLOWS] CAN SHE GET BY SIREN? DIDN’T MAKE
MUCH OF A MOVE. LITTLE WIGGLE. LET’S TAKE
ANOTHER LOOK. NOT MUCH OF A MOVE, BUT SHE WENT TO THE LEFT
AND GOT THROUGH. IN THE 1996 OLYMPICS FOR HER NATIVE COUNTRY OF NIGERIA. THAT’S WHERE HER PARENTS HAIL FROM. ICE WILL BE IN BREAKTHROUGH; JAZZ IN THE CONQUER RING.>>CONTENDER READY! GLADIATORS READY! [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>PEGGY, THE NUMBER-ONE SEED — DID YOU SEE THAT LOOK? “COME ON, ICE.” ICE WENT AFTER HER. ICE HAD HER, BUT PEGGY SLIPPED AWAY TO PICK UP 5 POINTS. THAT WAS INTERESTING. WE’VE NEVER SEEN THAT FROM A CONTENDER BEFORE.>>[ CHUCKLES ] I DON’T THINK MOST ARE BRAVE ENOUGH TO DO THAT.>>ICE ALMOST SUCCESSFUL IN STRIPPING THE BALL AWAY. OKAY, HUNKERING DOWN IN THE IA. WE TOLD YOU
SHE’S PURSUING
A FIRE-FIGHTING CAREER. SHE GOT TOUGH
FOR THIS EVENT I’M NOT SURE
THAT HELMET FIT, BUT IT’S
PAID DIVIDENDS HERE. STRAIGHT DOWN THE FIELD. SHE TRIES A ROLL MOVE. YOU CAN’T DO THAT
WITH STORM. YOU HAVE TO GET STORM
TO COMMIT ONE WAY, THEN MAKE THE BREAK. YOU CAN’T JUST RUN INTO HER,
THEN TRY TO SPIN OFF. THAT’S HOW CLOSE IT IS BETWEEN PEGGY AND D’ONNA. D’ONNA UP FIRST. YOU CAN SEE THAT SHE HAS HER BREAKTHROUGH AND THEN ICE IN THE SHE TRAILS PEGGY ODITA BY 8 GOING INTO THIS EVENT. SHE’S GOT TO GET BY ZAP HERE IN BREAKTHROUGH. ZAP RUNNING — OH, SHE WENT HIGH. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN AUTOMATIC 5 POINTS ANYWAY.>>Malosky: OOH, ZAP GAVE HER QUITE A SHOT TO THE HEAD.>>Adamle: A LITTLE CHIN MUSIC. MELISSA UP FIRST.
SHE’S TIED WITH KATY. SHE GETS STORM
IN BREAKTHROUGH, ZAP IN THE CONQUER RING. SHE’S DRAWN TWO
TOUGH CUSTOMERS, MIKE. STORM KNOWS
WHAT SHE’S DOING
IN THIS BREAKTHROUGH. GLADIATOR, READY! [WHISTLE BLOWS] NICE MOVE BY MELISSA. SHE TRIES TO POWER
HER WAY. STORM
CUTS OFF THE ANGLE AND KNOCKS HER OUT
OF BOUNDS–NO POINTS. STORM DOING A GOOD JOB
NOT GOING FOR THE FAKE. BREAKTHROUGH, AND STORM IN THE CONQUERING. IT’S CRUNCH TIME HERE ON THE “AMERICAN GLADIATORS.”>>WELL, CHERYL WILSON — FOCUSED. SHE’LL TRY TO GET BY ELEKTRA IN BREAKTHROUGH.>>CONTENDER, READY! GLADIATOR, READY! [ WHISTLE BLOWS ]>>OH, ELEKTRA, GET UPFIELD. OH!>>SHE SHOULD HAVE GONE UPFIELD.>>IT WAS A GREAT MOVE BY CHERYL. BUT ELEKTRA GETS UP TO THAT FIVE-YARD LINE, CHERYL WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DRAG HER ACROSS. SHE GAVE HER TWO YARDS.>>SHE JUST SHOWED US ANOTHER DIMENSION OF HER ATHLETIC PROWESS. WE KNEW SHE HAD SPEED AND QUICKNESS. NOW WE FIND OUT SHE HAS POWER AS WELL.>>ELEKTRA JUST RUNNING OUT OF ROOM. SHE SHOULD HAVE MOVED UPFIELD.>>SO A SIMPLE PROPOSITION FOR CHERYL WILSON — SHE SCORES 5 POINTS, SHE’S TIED WITH KATY. SHE SCORES 10, SHE’LL TAKE THE LEAD GOING INTO THE ELIMINATOR.>>ELEKTRA WAY BACK — SHE’S MOVING UP TO THE 5-YARD LINE. NICE MOVE. ELEKTRA — SMART, SMART MOVE BY OUR GLADIATOR. WENT UP MIDFIELD AND WAITED. DIDN’T GO FOR THE FAKE. MADE A BEAUTIFUL TACKLE. PICTURE-PERFECT TAKEDOWN.>>READY! RUTH MORRIS WILL START. SHE’S ALREADY GOT
10 POINTS. SIREN WILL MAN
THE BREAKTHROUGH
PORTION, AND THEN IT’S
ICE, ICE BABY– THERE SHE IS– IN THE CONQUER RING. CONTENDER, READY! GLADIATOR, READY! [WHISTLE BLOWS] RUTH
WITH AN ABUNDANCE
OF ATHLETIC TALENT AND POWER. SHE POWERED
RIGHT THROUGH THAT, MIKE. RUTH TOLD ME THAT
SHE LOVES THIS EVENT
AND POWERBALL. BECAUSE SHAKIN’
AND BAKIN’ IS WHAT
SHE LIKES BEST. SHE SURE SHOOK THERE
IN BREAKTHROUGH. SEE WHAT SHE CAN DO
IN THE CONQUER RING. RE A AND WHY NOT? WHEN SIREN
AND ZAP SPEAK,
PEOPLE LISTEN. SIREN GETTING
THE TRADITIONAL
GOOD VIRST. SHE BEAT SIREN IN
THE PRELIMINARY ROUND. WE’LL SEE IF SHE CAN
DO IT TWICE. CONTENDER, READY! GLADIATOR, READY! CONTENDERS MUST MAKE
SOME KIND OF MOVE
IN BREAKTHROUGH. THEY JUST CAN’T
BOWL PEOPLE OVER. SIREN STEPS UP
TO MEET RUTH MORRIS AND MEETS THE CHALLENGE,
KNOCKING HER
OUT OF BOUNDS. RUTH HAD GOTTEN BY SIREN
IN THE PRELIMS. SHE’S GOT 10 SECONDS TO SEE WHAT SHE CAN DO
WITH ZAP IN
THE CONQUER RING.
