Chiropractic Intern Competes on "American Gladiators" Show

LACC intern Mark Ortega was a competitor on the television show "American Gladiators" produced by Universal Studios in Hollywood. The show features contestants competing against each other, as well as the show's resident "gladiators."

Mark, a former football hero from Whittier Christian High School, entered the try-outs in April, held at Universal Studios and other locations across the country. About 1000 people qualified by performing a series of difficult physical tests including 25 pull-ups in 30 seconds, a 40 yard dash in under 5 seconds, and a 20 foot rope climb in 9 seconds. These 1000 finalists sat for videotaped interviews for the show's producers and 48 were selected.

During the quarterfinals, which were aired October 19, Mark competed again a Golden Glove boxing champion who works as a U.S. border guard and won with a final score of 40-18. Mark competed in the semi-finals on November 9th.

Also qualifying for "American Gladiators" was Tommy Knox, D.C., from Newport Beach, California. During the games, Dr. Knox could also be seen backstage giving chiropractic treatment to some of the gladiators.
