FORT LEE, Va. – Sgt. David Rider and Spc. Joshua McDowell completed the Army Physical Fitness Test phase of the 2010 Army Best Warrior Competition this morning.

As the fog hovered over Williams Stadium, bringing with it cooler temperatures, the action on the track heated up as Rider, McDowell and the other 22 NCOs and junior enlisted Soldiers were greeted with cheers and the ‘Wave’ around the stadium.

While both competitors said they felt they did well on the each phase of the test, they said the cheering crowds really helped to raise their enthusiasm.

“It was the most motivating PT test I’ve ever taken,” McDowell said afterwards.
