First Place / 2012 Ultimate Athlete: D’Juan Woods
Woods, 28, was a former NFL wide receiver for two years with the Jacksonville Jaguars before signing with the New Orleans Saints. Standing over six feet with broad shoulders and a wide back, Woods blasted through the entire event weekend with an intense level of focus and determination – he clearly came to win. [We noticed D’Juan, before his last run, performing heavy breathing techniques in an effort to dial in his focus and stay calm.] Woods displayed an incredible level of talent and strength with lights-out performances in the workout circuit and football challenges. He also delivered solid scores in baseball and basketball.
Hang tight for a one-on-one interview with D’Juan about NFL football career, how he got involved in Ultimate Athlete and what his training was leading up to the event…
Second Place: Kyle Clarke
The former Army captain was a heavy favorite coming into the Ultimate Athlete. Clarke had been training for months leading up to the event as he was one of our bloggers who shared his prep routines. The team MRI athlete also signed up with dad Dale – who, at 63 schooled competitors half his age. Kyle was your all-around athlete: balanced, sharp, methodical and on-point across all events. The guy also looks the the part of an Ultimate Athlete.
Third Place: Richard Scott Jensen
Jensen was another guy who put on a great show and really impressed us. A very soft spoken guy that kept to himself, but brought an admirable level of focus and balanced athleticism. Stone-serious Jensen did what he had to and gave it his all, both days. An absolute solid performer in baseball, basketball and the workout circuit. He threw some serious gas (and accuracy) in the baseball challenge!
