9/6/2012 - ARNOLD AIR FORCE BASE, Tenn. -- Team AEDC members took to the "battlefield" Aug. 15 to test their fitness.
Battlefield Day, put together by the AEDC Fitness Center once a year, is a series of events designed to push competitors' level of fitness. Participants competed in relays and sprints, hit a 170-pound tire with a hammer and toss the tire as many times as possible in 30 seconds, and took part in a game of tug-of-war.
"People are left feeling spent, but with a sense of accomplishment," said Joe Watters, AEDC Fitness Center programs coordinator.
This year's winners were:
· Baton relay - 2nd Lt. Matthew Karczewski and 2nd Lt. Ben Hoff
· 60-meter sprint - Jordan Panter
· Tire hammer and toss - Jordan Panter
· Tug-of-War - Chad Overcast, Brian Pittman, Paul Wright and Paul Schwer.
