Local Woman Competes in Toughest Competition Series on Television

PINE CITY, N.Y. (18 NEWS)- - Pine City's Kathy Brown recently went head to head with some of the toughest women in America in hopes of becoming the champion of CMT's "Broken Skull Challenge." 

"I was competing against girls that win the obstacle course races that I do and climb on top of Mount Everest and do these world competitions and train year round so I was very ecstatic to get the call," Brown said. 

The multi-sport athlete and former Division 1 swimmer was flown to the desert to compete on the most physically demanding course on television, designed by retired professional wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin. 

"It's in the desert so it's usually 140°in the blazing sun so that's obstacle number one and then you compete head to head against each other to get to some type of bell and you are allowed to pretty much do anything except punch each other in the face to get to the bell," Brown said. 

The loser goes home and the winner moves on to another intense, limit testing challenge. Brown made it to the very last round, making the Twin Tiers proud. Something she says she owes to her training at New York Sport and Fitness. 

"Motivation is key. I mean, you can push yourself to the limits and it's just being able to stay motivated for a long period of time. Like here, at New York Sport and Fitness, you have your gym family, you have all these people who are going to be at the gym tomorrow morning...I have to get up at 4:30 in the morning because they're going to be there and they are going to be counting on me," Brown said. 

Brown says being a part of the show was an experience she'll never forget. 

"It was absolutely amazing to go out there first of all to meet Stone Cold Steve Austin who is an awesome wrestler and just someone who has come up with these obstacle courses just to test you, it was just great to be with another group of girls that I've now become friends with," Brown said.
