From Staff Reports
The Academy’s Firefighter Combat Challenge team competed in St. Louis last weekend, capturing third place in the team competition and bringing home gold in the relay event.
The team put up a 1:10 time in the relay – a new team record by 3 seconds and only 2 seconds from a world record – to bring home its first-place finish.
USAFA firefighters competed in several categories of the combat challenge, including the open category, an over-40 male relay and a female relay team. The firefighters credit their outstanding results to their workout regimen and superb preparation.
The Academy team will compete in The Firefighter Combat Challenge world finals in Las Vegas Nov. 19-20.
