third in the South Atlantic Strong-
man III Platinum contest Feb. 16 in
Columbia, S.C.
Tech. Sgt. Jacob Peeterse earned a
berth to the national competition by
placing in the top three in the 231-
265 pound weight class.
The contest, similar to television's
"World's Strongest Man," con-
tains non-traditional athletic events
that require substantial feats of
The competition started with the
keg carry and load event, which had
contestants lifting 200-, 225- and
250-pound kegs to various heights.
"Watching the lightweight divi-
sion go through, it looked like it was
going to be pretty tough," Sergeant
Peeterse said. "I went through the
whole thing pretty easy, but messed
up the 250 because I grabbed it even-
He finished the event with a time
of 33 seconds-- good enough to take
first place for that portion.

himself unable to complete the
press, but fortunately only one other
competitor was able to. He said he

Peeterse said he gave it his all, but
was unable to top his competition.
He placed last in the event.
"That killed my chances of
getting any higher than third,"
he said.
However, he bounced back in

the next event, the 575-pound
dead lift by nabbing second place
with five repetitions. He then fol-
lowed up with a third-place finish
in the stone lifting portion.
The final event of the afternoon
was the 700-pound chain drag.

Peeterse's weight class dragged
the chain the entire distance up
the 100-foot hill.

was lose third," Sergeant Peeterse

I grabbed the chain, looked at
the sky and pulled for all I was
