Omaha Challenge - Day 1

Nov. 30, 2017

The Commodores opened the Omaha Challenge on Tuesday with a pair of sessions.

In the morning the squad took on the VandyBoys triathlon and the PVC pipe push. In the triathlon, the Dores rowed for 500 meters, did 25 box jumps and pushed a 100-pound sled 40 yards before sprinting through the finish line for time. The PVC pipe push put the team through a 100-yard sprint while pushing a two-foot piece of pipe on the ground the distance.

In the afternoon, the team took on three more events competing in the pull-up bar hang, trap bar farmers walk and the tackling dummy drag race. The pull-up bar hang is as simple as it sounds, competitors hung as long as they could on the bar. The farmers walk featured a trap bar loaded with 225 pounds with the Dores carrying it for as far as they could. The final event had the team dragging tackling dummies 100 yards for time.

Teams for this year's Omaha Challenge are led by Stephen Scott (red), Connor Kaiser (white), Ethan Paul (blue) and Walker Grisanti (green).
