Every two years the “World Firefighter Games TFA” are held and the title “Toughest Firefighter Alive” is awarded.
The championship is quite comparable to the Ironman, but here the toughest firefighters from all Nations battle in specific firefighter-challenges.
Joachim Posanz (on the picture right) and Alexander Meyer, two firefighters from Göttingen, Germany made 1st and 3rd place in the last championship in Daegu, South-Korea 2010. We are proud to supply both of them with a Schuberth F220 for their next challenge in 2012.
The “Indoor Firefighter Challenge” is a smaller national champioship that took place on March, 13th in Dortmund. Our Team had to succeed in 5 challenges with full Firefighter outfit.
Started with the “Tower challenge”, where a 19 kg fire hose has to be carried 12,5m high. Form above they had to pull up another fire hose.
After pulling a 79,4kg Dummy backwards over the finish line they made again 1st and 2nd place in the championship – congratulations !
The next challenge will be the “Berlin Firefighter Stairrun”, next Saturday and we´ll accompany their hopefully succesful finish and post more fotos here – good luck !
