Kingston Officers Attending 2017 World Police and Fire Games
The World Police and Fire Games (http://www.la17wpfg.com/6/index.htm) will be held in Los Angeles California on August 7, 2017. Some of our members will be participating to represent Kingston!
18-year-veteran, Constable Greg Anderson, will be attending to compete in multiple cycling events. This will be Greg’s second Police and Fire Games as he competed in Fairfax, Virginia in 2015. That year he took part in the men’s individual time trial and road race cycling events. For 2017 Greg will be challenging himself even further by competing in the same events, but also tackling the men’s individual hill climb. The hill climb may only be 4 kilometers, but it’s straight up! Seeing there are no Mountains in Kingston to train on, it will be a new challenge for Greg.
