As New Zealand takes on Australian Spartan, Obstacle Racers NZ will keep you updated on the progress of each team.
Below is your guide to the appearance of each Kiwi team on the Australian Spartan tv show and how far they made it through the ” most diabolical test of team-work ever devised.”
Australian Spartan is currently airing in New Zealand on TVNZ 2.
Inspired by the world-wide fitness phenomenon Spartan Race, “this is one of the world’s toughest team-based obstacle courses around. Teams of three from New Zealand and Australia will have to work together as they race through a series of specially designed obstacles engineered to challenge their ability to work together in the biggest test of teamwork ever.” For a commentary of Australian Spartan in New Zealand, see ORNZ’s opinion post on the show here.
