I'm surprised that the third/fourth/fifth guys didn't just go straight after him following his path exactly instead of giving him those opportunities to pause and rest. As he tires just relentlessly follow him. If you don't catch him within your time limit at least you leave him more tired for the next dude.

They make men's jeans with spandex and stuff now. Plenty of them are extremely comfortable to do athletic shit like this in. Plus, it's only a 20 second round. What do you think they should be wearing?

Idk bro, not jeans? Seems like the dude wearing track pants while setting a world record had the right idea.

Made it look easy.

Only way it could be bettered is by someone doing it clean in the first 8 rounds, without needing the chase first. But that's entirely luck of the draw. Imperious performance.
