obvious one that comes to mind is man vs. man or perhaps to be more
precise athlete vs. athlete in the world of endurance sports.
But much of the recent endurance news has also been devoted to man vs. nature.
For instance such crazy hard endurance events and races as swimming across the Atlantic ocean or running several hundred miles through the desert.
But the video below has it all in terms of endurance : Man vs. Man, and Man vs. Nature, and of course Man vs. Himself---as in Will Ferrell trying to walk on a pair of homemade snow shoes.
According to Buddytv.com this is a promo for the "Discovery Channel on Tuesday, June 2. Man vs. Wild. The special episode is tied to Universal Pictures' upcoming comedy adventure Land of the Lost, which stars Ferrell and hits movie theaters on June 5.
In this first joint extreme adventure special, Grylls guides Ferrell through the paces of real life survival in the ice-bound mountain and glacier ranges in the far north of Sweden. As usual, Grylls is armed with only the most basic survival equipment, while Ferrell is equipped with his infectious sense of humor."
