The toughest two minutes in sports will be hosted in Martin County this weekend. The Firefighter Combat Challenge is a grueling course that requires strength and endurance and showcases skills that firefighters use every day. The free-to-attend contest will be held Saturday and Sunday at Stuart Beach and is a regional qualifying event for the national competition scheduled to take place in Fort Pierce in September. Both Treasure Coast competitions are the only ones in Florida this year. The number one team in the world from Ukraine will be competing this weekend. The Treasure Coast Sports Commission was able to setup their arrival after the two-man crew took a train to Poland and then flew to Turkey and then to Florida. Both men said they had to take a break from training to help save people during the war, but now are in Martin County ready to represent their home country.
