This comes to L & S from our Lakewood reporter, Brent Champaco.
Lakewood City Manager Andrew Neiditiz wrote about three Lakewood officers competing in the Police and Fire Games in Boise.
Police and Fire Games: Officers Jim Syler, Michelle Hector and Jeff Martin are currently competing in the Police and Fire Games being held in Boise, Idaho. Hector and Syler took 2nd place in the “Toughest Man Alive” event. This competition has several events within it. Some of the events are running, rope climbing, shot-put, weight lifting and an obstacle course. They both received the silver medal and a moment on the awards podium. Michelle Hector competed in the 5K cross country run on Tuesday and took the gold medal. She competed against men and women and apparently smoked everyone. The 5K was no easy course; it consisted of pavement, dirt trails, large hills, and sand. Congratulations to all officers who participated!
