World Challenge XXVI Wrap: Let’s Hear it for the Ladies

Right now, my head is ready to explode. If you were here in Louisville, you’ll know what I mean. Over the next several days, I’m going to hit the highlights of what has been a fantastic week.

First, the ladies. Or, ladies first. Depending upon your source, women occupy 3.5% of the career firefighter positions. And, the numbers are reflected in the census in the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge. But disproportionate to their numbers, their influence has been huge. You’ve never met a more energetic and impressive group of athletes. Anywhere.

I’m going to request posts here from some of our women but in the meantime, here’s a photo of all the women who attended this year’s Lion’s Den Induction Dinner.

They organized and obtained the photo below.
