The story:
The Jungle Olympics are underway again, and this year it is the previous winners Oongaan (mainly thanks to their individual athlete Obiju) who traditionally carries the trophy from their village to the Jungle Olympics arena to present it to the Phantom before the games commence.

But unbeknown to the trophy bearer Obiju, former shipmates of his have followed him into the jungle and now stand ready to claim the priceless trophy for themselves and plunge the games into chaos as the runaway favourites Wambesi are on the verge of victory.

Watch out for:

  • The relatively small Oongan tribe being surprise holders of the trophy
  • An increasingly restless Olympics amphitheatre
  • Double-crossing trophy thieves
