Episode 109 – World’s Toughest Mudder 2014 Part III

109

As one of a handful of Barkley Ultramarathon finishers in the world, ever, Nickademus Hollon entered WTM with tons of respect from the OCR community. Many were considering him a contendor to win it all. In Episode 107, we had a nice chat where he talked about how his massive ultramarathon training experience could really benefit him in a race like this. He ended up with only his 2nd ever DNF. We talk to him and find out what happened.

Amelia Boone missed the Spartan World Championships and the OCR World Championships as she chose to have major surgery about 3 months ago. Her return to World’s Toughest was also her return to the top as she was crownded champion again.

Ryan Atkins got to stand in Pak’s shoes and feel what it’s like to contend when everyone knows exactly who you are. He promptly defended his title against arguably the most competitive field to date.
