Dolvett introduced the players to Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who talked about his own “Second Chance” – this season’s theme – and worked out with the contestants inside the spectacular Olympic Oval arena. Then the contestants competed in the sport of curling, after an introduction to USA Curling team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm. The fun continued at the base of the bobsled track, where words of motivation from USA Bobsled Team members Lolo Jones and Jazmine Fenlator got the remaining seven players fired up about the fast-paced sport. But for this week’s challenge, they did not race down the track. Instead, they ran more than a mile up the bobsled track, a challenge made far more difficult by the elevation of over 7,000 feet.
