Can an Olympic Track Cyclist figure skate?  Can a visually-impaired Paralympian in Judo shoot a bulls-eye?  Can either of them swing on a pommel horse without permanent injury?

Meet Mike and Myles. 

Mike Blatchford, a 2008 Beijing Track Cyclist and Myles Porter, a 2008 Paralympian in Judo have both lived on and off for years at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO, training to represent their country.  With world-class athletic facilities just steps from their dorm and time to spare in between eating, lifting and sleeping, these two have challenged each other to a multi-sport duel in a series of sports where they AREN'T among the best in the world. 

It is not always pretty, but they have recruited fellow resident athletes to teach them the basics of Figure Skating, Gymnastics, Shooting, Weightlifting, and Wrestling. Watch each Tuesday to see how well Olympic and Paralympic skills translate to sports of finesse and artistic impression.
