Fittest Soldier

Over the last week the fittest and fastest of South Africa's air force, navy and army soldiers came together in Port Elizabeth to participate in the annual Fittest Soldier competition.  I went down to the army base in Forest Hill one morning an watched them do what they call the "Beep Test".  The exercise looks quite straight forward with the participants running up and down a tennis court and having to get to the turning line before the beep sounds.  The catch is that the longer into the race the faster the beeps go and soon participants start to fall out.
