80's movie question: set in eastern europe - US gymnast competes in deadly obstacle course race. Any ideas?

It was on years ago late at night on TNT. The plot revolves around a US Gymnast who travels to some backward european country to compete in a race/obstacle course. He also wins over the heart of a young princess from the country. I was drifting in and out of consciousness during the movie so I don't know that many more details. I do know that the other participants in the race were trying to kill each other in order to win.
