More than 30 athletes of all ages gathered at the Riverside Café Saturday morning for the inaugural SEAL Museum Bridge Challenge. Each competitor jumped from the café's dock, swam 75-yards to a six-inch-wide stainless steel wire cable ladder, climbed nearly 80-feet to the top of the Merrill P. Barber Bridge, run to the end of the bridge and back, climb down a rope back to the water, swim back to the dock and ring the bell. One of the volunteers said it best, 'this is a young man's sport.'

Here, after swimming from the dock in the background, Paul Schall, 58, pulls himself up and over the bridge railing during Saturday's event. The crowd cheered as he rang the bell, completing the challenge.
