A new event for Season 2, Sideswipe has both contenders hopping or running from platform to platform above the water as they try to take a colored ball from a container on one end of a line of five platforms and deposit it in a "bullseye" goal at the other end. While the contestants are transporting the balls, three Gladiators try to knock them off the platforms by swinging at them on rope swings - with the Gladiators themselves being the projectiles.[2] The event can be described as "'Hit and Run' meets 'Powerball' meets 'Human Cannonball'."
