Log rolling competition in Madison

MADISON (WKOW) -- Athletes from across the state were in Madison Sunday, for the Capitol Splash Log Rolling Tournament.

It's one of the first round robin competitions this spring for YMCA log rollers, giving the athletes a chance to warm up for the season.

"Log rolling is great because it develops balance and coordination, as well as endurance and self confidence," says coach John Hallett, from the Oconomowoc YMCA.

Log rolling is a popular sport here in Wisconsin. Many area athletes go on to the world championship competition, held annually in Hayward, in northern Wisconsin.
