David Staples pulls himself up and over the bridge railing during Saturday's SEAL Museum Bridge Challenge in Vero Beach. More than 30 athletes participated in 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, ran to the end of the bridge and back, climbed down a rope to the water, swam back to the dock and rang the bell. One of the volunteers said it best, 'this is a young man's sport.'
