Two Palm Beach County residents have pushed themselves to the limit on national television as they compete in NBC’s The Titan Games. Julie Dudley, a 50-year-old grandmother from Jupiter and firefighter of 20 years, defeated an opponent half her age during one of the contests in the premiere episode.

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Chris Ruden was a testament to the inspirational stories the show highlights. The Florida Atlantic University graduate was born with a birth defect that left him with a short arm and only two fingers on one hand. But that didn’t stop Ruden, who sported a bionic arm during the trials.
