Muddy Mud Guts and Glory Masters, Warrior Dash Warriors, Beasts Beasting the UltraBeast and Conquer the Gauntlet...Conquistadors? Okay - that last one was a stretch, but you get the gist. This last weekend had no lack of races, mud, pain or fun! Whether it was a fun run or a death march you craved, OCR delivered in spades.
Amy Pajcic at first glance is an unassuming athlete, she quietly has been a dominant female in the sport of OCR and American Ninja Warrior for years. Her first foray into OCR was jumping straight into World's Toughest Mudder after a friend convinced her it would be fun. Pajcic quickly asserted herself in the sport finishing 3rd in that event.
It is always so lovely to be in the swing of the season and see the OCR calendar come to life all over the world. In Australia, the bucket-list worthy True Grit had an amazing weekend, while in Canada, the XMan Race brought in impressive numbers. Dirty Dozen weekend in England, Warrior Race in South Africa...the entire planet appears to have been getting muddy this week!
Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge moved to its new day and time last night on NBC. Last night's episode, hyped up the friendly rivalry between elite OCR competitors Hunter McIntyre and David Magida. The audience was inspired by Amy Winters and Amy Pajcic team's drive and determination on the challenging slip wall. Today we look at how the show did by the numbers and get the side scoop from three team captains.
