TORONTO, July 23, 2015 /CNW/ - The journey came to an end in Buenos
Aires, Argentina for Dana Hayward and Amanda Johnston in tonight's
episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. The Newfoundland and Labrador-based police officers fell behind the
pack after struggling with a blindfolded soccer challenge at Futbol
Madero, and were eliminated from the race at the Pit Stop at Puenta de
la Mujer (Woman's Bridge) in Puerto Madero.
Standing alongside Dana and Amanda at the Pit Stop, fellow police
officers Brian and Cynthia said the Newfoundland and Labrador pair did
their badge proud. "They represented their people and their province
with honour," said Brian, who, along with wife Cynthia, was second last
to arrive at the Pit Stop.
"We are so proud to be Canadian… and we're proud of what we
accomplished, and the representation we made for our province, and our
police force," said a tearful Amanda.
"I'm so so happy I got to experience this amazing race with her," added

Episode 303 Recap
From the Pit Start in Santiago, Chile, 10 teams travelled more than
1,500 kilometres to Buenos Aires, Argentina. At Plaza Canada, their
clue was waiting for them at a traditional totem donated by Canada to
Argentina to celebrate the rich Aboriginal heritage shared between the
two countries. In the first Road Block, teams had to spell the names of
four famous Argentinians using lettered Mentos Mint candies and gum.
Teams then made their way to Futbol Madero for the next challenge - a
round of blind soccer where teams were forced to work as coach and
player, with one team member calling out directions to their
blindfolded partner. At the limited stations Detour (room for only six
teams at each challenge), teams chose between two ways to win the heart
of any Argentinian - dance or dine. The dine Detour had racers memorize
the Spanish orders of three different restaurant patrons, while at the
dance Detour, racers had to master and perform Argentina's national
dance - the tango. Nic and Sabrina were the first team to arrive at the
Pit Stop in Puerto Madero, but after failing to complete the soccer
challenge, they were forced to wait out a two-hour penalty. Neil and
Kristin were next to arrive at the Pit Stop, winning the leg. Host Jon
Montgomery greeted them with their leg prize - two round-trip tickets
from Air Canada to Beijing, China, plus six months of free gas from
