While struggling with the lunges on Event 6, a crowd gathered around Dave Powell. It was the other North West athletes cheering him on, encouraging him to keep going and finish the event.
"I think there's a respect for each and every one of us," Powell said. "We all hope to win, but going into the last day, I know I'm out. I can't make it in the top three, I'm trying to keep my ego alive. Without those guys, I wouldn't have finished."
