I am building a fictional world at the moment.
"Gladiators" are naked men who have to complete in a continuous olympics-style event. Following the first event, they must participate in a variety of athletic activities, like the rope climb, throwing the discus, running, the hurdles. The exact activities are not known beforehand. The people with the lowest scores at the end are killed, only the winner is safe for sure.
The first event the gladiators compete in is to stand in front of targets at a handgun firing range. There are non-gladiators shooting directly at the centres of the targets. The handguns can be seen by the gladiator, but are not the same for every event.
If the bullets fired hit the target (which are massive) the gladiator is killed.
So, the gladiators try to stop the bullets from hitting the targets by catching the bullets within their own bodies.
Obviously, they also don't want to be incapacitated from the damage caused by the bullet wound.
How can one best assure victory at this "sport", given a perfect knowledge of their own anatomy and how bullets and firearms work?
What strategy should be employed to catch the bullets? What's the most efficient way to stop these bullets?
How should one position themselves to stop the bullets, while minimising damage to themselves.
