The olympics don't start until next month, but Sunday some emergency responders got a jump on the action.
Around 2,000 firefighters are in Bryan/College Station taking part in the Texas Firefighter Olympics.
The competition began Sunday morning with the power lifters.
Events continue throughout the week, there's even a dance and night burn demonstration.
It's the first time since 1993 that BCS has hosted the Firefighter Olympics.
