We take a commercial break, and when we return the trainers have some Olympians for the contestants to meet. There is Alpine skier Julia Mancuso and freestyle skier Speedy Peterson. Speedy, whose real name is Jeret, is shot out of a cannon and does three flips and five twists 55 feet in the air before landing on his skis once again. In the future he will be known as Jeret "Speedy for Having a Broken Neck" Peterson. Jillian tells us that the Olympics are special because they're about making your dreams come true. What if your dream is to have a RuPaul's Drag Race marathon while eating cupcakes? Julia says that she's been skiing her whole life, and loves to be fit. Fascinating.
The contestants get to work out with Speedy and Julia. Speedy has a circuit set up involving fancy footwork and punching bags and push-ups and lots of sweat. Julia's workout is more fun, and involves ladder steps and hula hooping on stability balls. Sherry tells us that the altitude is getting to her. Also, the exercise. Bob reminds us of the red line threat, and refuses to let Speedy give the guys a break. Hard core! Everyone is huffing and puffing and generally looking uncomfortable. Michael tells us straight-up that it's horrible. Olympians really work hard, y'all. Except, wait! Speedy says that he doesn't even work out that hard. He adds that the Losers are an inspiration to him and everyone at home, and had better be inspirations to themselves. Bob tells everyone that the red line looms, and there's no time to rest.
Bob then has an intervention with Koli, who's still having issues of worth and thinks that John deserved to be there more. He's having a hard time wanting to be there. Bob says that John isn't here now, and that Koli is fantastic and needs to get over it. He's either on the edge of a major breakthrough, or is going to go home. The Olympic flame burns, and Speedy tries to convince us to do lunges throughout the commercial break.
When we return, Sami greets the contestants and says that becoming an Olympic champion boils down to one thing -- when their day comes, they simply have to push harder than everyone else. And that's what the Losers have to do for today's pop challenge. Olympic hopeful J.R. Celski, whose genre is short track speedskating, greets the contestants. He started inline speedskating when he was three, and is now 19. Two months ago he was in a hospital bed unable to move. During the last day of Olympic trials he put his blade in his leg, and has a giant Frankenstein scar to prove it. He's bounced back, and tells the contestants that they just have to be dedicated to what they do and go for it. Boy, is he adorable, even if it seems like you have to be a pretty terrible skater to slice open your leg with your own blade.
