In a tense yet amusing segment of the German game show Schlag den Star (Beat the Celebrity), professional athletes Alexander Zverev (Tennis) and Silvio Heinevetter (Handball) faced off against each other to see who could perfectly cut vegetables exactly in half. After cutting, the halves were weighed to see who was more precise with their knife skills.
