Titre original : A Date with Destiny
Team Japan's day off goes in unsuspected ways when Dr Aki insists that he check out why Sumilodon was able to use the Medaforce. Leaving Koji behind, Ikki and Erika head off in search of Team Iceland to check out the competition, but Erika soon falls in love with team leader Belmont. When Belmont falls ill saving Erika, she feels guilty that he might not be able to compete and pleads with Victor to postpone the match but he refuses. The match goes on as planned and although Belmont fights valiantly, Warbandit is too powerful and Team kenya wins the second place in the finals, taking Orkamar's medal as their prize. While Belmont mourns the loss, Ikki vows to win back the medal by defeating Victor in the finals, however Brass tries to explain that Warbandit told her that Victor does not want to take the medals, but is doing it for another reason.
