Three performers from Cirque du Soleil competed against a team of Tucson firefighters today in a test of strength, endurance, and overall flexibility.

The assessment test involved doing pullups, pushups and jumping exercises. The competition also included firefighting themed events including pulling the hose off the truck, transporting 70-pound dummies and more.

This contest went down ahead of an upcoming five-day visit to Tucson, where they will perform their imaginative OVO show at the Tucson Arena starting, April 19 through Sunday, April 23.
