Re: Rob Orlando

He didn't make the swim. Needed to go to a lifeguard.

It was said that he has no chance to win because of a DNF.

Re: Rob Orlando

Oh man if they were stung, I am not sure how I feel about that. I mean that isn't really something that should keep them out of the comp. If I was HQ I would give them the chance to run the even again.....

Re: Rob Orlando

Rob is allowed to continue, but will not make it past the first round of cuts due to DNFing the swim.

It will be interesting to see if he chooses to continue...

On the games twitter feed they said rob felt like he was sinking so he went to a lifegaurd and Mikko made it thru the event before going to the medics.
