In the same race when the Oceanics' broke the record at the Relay Race event, Team Primary's Imar had started his leg too early, resulting in the team's disqualification. The disqualification had led to a brawl in the stands, and deducted 3 points from Team Primary's overall score in the 2017 Marblelympics. The disqualification had become a significant occurrence that the record-breaking was hardly noticed at the event. The Oceanics were also unable to advance to the final, losing to the Pinkies in a photo finish.
Following the Jungle Jumpers' victory from the Archery event, they went on to win the bronze medal in the Underwater Race event. Due to their impressive performance from the 2 consecutive events, they overslept from celebrating and could not make it to the final event, the Sand Race.
