Man Versus Beast Sports Challenges

A dog and a human will try to outjump each other in Man vs. Beast 2.
Human vs. Dog

Can a human jump further than a dog? Can a man climb faster than a chimp? Fox Television will attempt to answer these questions with Man vs. Beast 2, a series of sports challenges between humans and animals. Kidzworld checks out some of these Man vs. Beast challenges, as well as some other match-ups we'd like to see.

Long Jump - Human vs. Dog

Bryan Clay, an All-American long jumper, currently training for the 2004 Olympic decathlon will challenge Morgan, a black Labrador who holds the record for longest jump at the ESPN Outdoor Games. Morgan jumped 23 feet, 4 inches at the Outdoor Games, while the longest a human has long jumped is just over 29 feet.
Predicted Winner: Morgan, the black lab, pulls off the upset and wins by an inch.

Tree Climbing - Human vs. Chimpanzee

In a contest of speed and agility, champion tree climber Kap Teo-Tafiti faces off with Jacob the chimpanzee in a race to the top of a 40-foot palm tree.
Predicted Winner: Chimp beats the chump to become the champ.

Relay Race - Humans vs. Camel

This is probably the strangest of all the Man vs. Beast challenges. Five midgets will group together and try to defeat a six foot tall, 1,500-pound camel in a 400-meter relay sprint.
Predicted Winner: Camel wins by several lengths. Two of the six midgets get trampled to death by the camel.

Underwater Breathing - Human vs. Dolphin

How about holding a contest to see who can hold their breath longest - a human or a dolphin. Most dolphins can stay underwater for at least 10 minutes, although they usually surface for air every 30 seconds. Most humans, on the other hand, can't stay underwater for much longer than a minute. However, the world record for underwater breathing is just over eight minutes.
Predicted Winner: Dolphin wins easily. Human ends up drowning.

Eating Contest - Human vs. Black Bear
A black bear and a human sit down and eat chicken wings, burgers and other munchables until one of them pukes. The average black bear will eat between 11 and 18 pounds of food each day, including berries, roots, deer, salmon and even garbage. Most humans don't eat that much, but the planet's top eaters would give a black bear a challenge. Competitive eater, Eric Booker, recently wolfed down 12 pounds of cheesecake in six minutes.
Prediction: Human defeats bear by eating two more chicken wings.

What do you think of Man vs. Beast challenges? Are they educational and fun entertainment, or cruelty to animals? what you think and let us know which Man vs. Beast challenges you'd like to see.

You can catch all the action of Man vs. Beast 2 on February 20, 2004 on Fox Television.

    Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
