Gibraltar ecoGIBRALTAR firefighters have triumphed in what is touted as the “toughest two minutes in sports.”

After competing in the European circuit of the Fire-fighter Combat Challenge, the four firefighters who formed a team from Gibraltar Fire & Rescue have been invited to the European Championship in Slovenia and the World Championships in Montgomery, USA.

The event combines a five-storey stair climb with a high rise pack, hose hoist, forcible entry, hose advance and victim rescue, and rewards the fastest time for completing the entire operation.
