Episode Description


In a temple in Kuala Lumpur, Shaolin monk Hu Qiong demonstrates his unbreakable body by smashing steel on his head, and spears in his throat. Bio-mechanic professor Dan Voss measures the forces at play to prove this is real. Dan watches Hu, as he attempts to push an electric drill into his own temple for a whole minute. Daniel arrives in San Diego to witness Chad hold back a 500 bhp car. Daniel calls in a sports physiologist to examine Chad’s technique, and to work out the real forces at play. It’s claimed Dickson Oppong’s stomach is like a camel’s hump: he can guzzle litres of water and then regurgitate it in a spectacular jet. Daniel meets Byron at an archery range where superslomo images capture his accuracy in detail. Then eye-tracking technology is brought in to see if his eyes actually track the targets, or is it just luck?
