Four men race in ladder-climbing competition in Ukraine


Amazing footage shows four men racing in a ladder-climbing competition as part of the fire-fighting sport in Ukraine.

The participants carried their steel ladders and ran across the field before reaching the end where they had to climb a wall using the equipment in Kyiv on February 24.

Fire-fighting sport is a sport discipline developed in the Soviet Union in 1937. It includes a competition between various fire fighting teams in fire fighting-related exercises, such as climbing stairs in a mock-up house, unfolding a water hose, and extinguishing a fire using hoses or extinguishers.
