.
Swim 1,500/50 = 30m
Cycle 40,000/50 = 800m
Run 10,000/50 = 200m
But each contestant will be better at some section than another.
Your Lego man, girl, alien replaces one of the following contestants. Transfer their number and times to your column.
Now calculate the Total Times for each contestant.
THEN roll the dice.
3. Disqualified because your coach gave you an alien Smoosnot drink with banned drugs by mistake.
5. Disqualified because a Groppanator from the Urgastor Galaxy ran out of the crowd just before the finish line and hugged you with his 6 arms.
