The second match for existence in Exatlon was served by a somewhat unexpected sovereign victory of Jadran, who in the last few days was struggling with a bad mood in the team. Triglav’s defeat also meant that this time for the first time we will be watching an elimination match between a competitor from the red team and a competitor from the blue team.

The second race for existence took place at the Caribbean Treasure training ground, in the paradisiacal environment of the Palmilla Natural Park. Jure once again reminded the competitors of the important match that awaited them. It already seemed that his sermon had taken its toll. The members of Jadran raced through the waves as if for a bet and the first two wins went to them.
The Triglavans then managed to grab two victories, but this time they somehow failed to aim with the balls. The Blues easily escaped to a score of 5:2.

Tim then saved the Reds’ honor with his second point. Although the Caribbean Sea is nothing like the Adriatic Sea, the Blues responded with force. They won four in a row and ran away to a score of 9:3. We have already seen several times that everything is possible in Exatlon, including incredible twists and turns. And indeed, the members of Triglav gathered their strength and thoughts and won two consecutive victories, reducing the deficit to 9:5.
Burja had to perform twice in a row due to the coincidence determined by the draw. And even though he already suffered two defeats in the match, this time he won the key point and led his team to victory with 10:5.

Jadran’s victory changed the course of the elimination match. Something we haven’t seen before in Exatlon will happen: two internal matches within the two teams and then a decisive elimination match for the losers. Statistically, the strongest competitors, Laura Rozman for the blues and Teo Čeh for the reds, face a difficult task, as they have to choose the one who will compete with the weakest in the team. At Jadran it is Aleš Žontar, and at Triglav it is Klemen Kopina.
You can see what Teo and Laura had to say about this thankless task in the video above.
