Among the returning participants was Nick Forgione, a 78-year-old retired Philadelphia police officer. Forgione, a 17-year cancer survivor and 10-time gold medalist in cycling, captured two silver medals in cycling.The Games featured 48 different types of competitions, such as arm wrestling, softball, police motorcycle, chess, skeet and trap, triathlon, and the now-famous Toughest Cop Alive competition, which challenges participants to run, swim, climb, press, pull and crawl their way through back-to-back maneuvers.
