Two CFA fireys from Bendigo wiped out the competition and won gold at the 2017 Police and Emergency Services Games in Melbourne last week.

The dynamite duo made up of CFA career firefighter Tegan Bubb and FFMVic District Support Officer and CFA volunteer Beth Miley competed in the Crossfit Women’s Pairs event.

The pair trained hard for the event, working out five times a week.

It is the second year Ms Miley has competed in Crossfit at the Police and Emergency Services Games, but she had previously competed in the individual event.

“Crossfit is a high-intensity fitness program that incorporates elements from several sports and types of exercise such as weightlifting and gymnastics,” Ms Miley said.

“The competition was a full day event and we were exhausted by the end of the day.

“It is a very demanding sport and we were ecstatic to win the gold.”

It was Ms Bubb’s first year participating and she’s already looking forward to taking on the competition next year.

“The camaraderie between the competitors was fantastic,” Ms Bubb said.

“It was a terrific environment to compete in and I’m looking forward to competing again next year.”

The Victoria Police and Emergency Services Games is an annual sporting event that emphasises camaraderie, fitness, health, and wellbeing of all emergency services workers.

The 10 day event includes more than 40 sports.
