You must complete the course by or under the qualifying time to succeed at this event. To complete it, you must run down the course, and jump over the hurdles as you encounter them. If you fail to jump over three hurdles, you are disqualified. You do not have to come in first place to win, you only need to beat the qualifying time.
- Jump as late as possible so that you clear more water. The less time you spend in water, the less you will slow down.
