Avanti for S4C, 17 September to 4 November 2010 (14 episodes)


In this series, twenty competitors undertook extreme fitness tests in south Wales, designed to push them to their limits, with ten of them qualifying for finals at a sports training camp in Tenerife.

Challenges in Wales included swimming at the Cardiff International Pool, cycling at Newport’s indoor velodrome, indoor climbing and white water kyacking at Cardiff Bay’s new centre. Competitors were eliminated in the same style as used on Born To Win, a BBC series from 2002, in which the three worst competitors in each phase were put before a panel of Jonathan, Non and Tim, who between them decided which one would leave the competition.

Events in the Tenerife final were a basketball challenge, a beach sprint, a 3.5km road cycle race, an upper body strength test and a 2km fell run.
