HKT48のおでかけ！ Air Date: 4/20/2017
The show about the general elections and sports climbing. Short but fun, as Odekake should be.
This episode starts with a big discussion about the upcoming general elections. It’s going to be the last election for Sashihara, so she and Goto talk about the other members with a good chance of taking over the first spot.
The Odekake segment is also about climbing to the top. The future Olympic games in Tokyo will include several new sports. A team of 6 HKT48 members leading by Imamura Maria went to try out one of them – sports climbing.
Their challenge was to climb an 8 meters (26 feet) wall as fast as they can. So after a brief master class from a professional athlete, all girls made an attempt.
Only three girls eventually made it to the top, but the process itself looked like genuine fun. Everybody was very noisy and cheered both successful and failed attempts.
Natural born monkey Sakaguchi Riko climbed her way to MVP badge.
