To see some great photos of the contest, please check out local photographer Jim Wallingford's website:
There are 917 photos that Jim Wallingford & Shannon Gill took of these kids giving their all in 6 grueling events!

Award-winning Seattle-Times photographer Alan Berner also shot some photos that came out in the Sunday newspaper today!  We made the front page of the "Local" section.
Alan actually came out on assignment to the contest, and then went to a banquet later that night and WON an award for his distinguished journalism!!  How cool was that of him to come by and visit our contest?

Thank you to Daniel Jahn, Leilani Finau, Maximum Sports Conditioning, and all the rest of the staff & volunteers who came out to help yesterday!  Its all about the kids in our local communitues, and I'm proud to be a part of it!
