A Harriman man faced down the ultimate opponents during weeks of competition in Los Angeles this fall.
Jeff Chapman, 26, was one of 12 male finalists to compete in the return of
American Gladiator, a television competition that pits men and women against a fearsome group of muscled annihilators.
"It is basically done tournament style," Chapman said of the events.
Competitors were first partnered up in pairs of men and women before facing the
gladiators in a variety of events, according to Chapman.
