Four Loudoun County first responders-and counting-have earned spots on the podium in the World Police & Fire Games so far this week.

Anne Ottosen, with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, earned gold in bodybuilding and Kim Holway, also a sheriff's office employee, won gold in the extreme sporting event competition, also known as CrossFit.

Technician Seaver Miller, from Station 602 in Purcellville, won silver in the wrestling event Tuesday. An athlete from Turkey took gold in the event, and an athlete from Mexico won bronze.

On Monday, firefighter Andrew Jenkins, from Station 623 in Ashburn, won a bronze medal in the martial arts-submission grappling event. A Canadian athlete took gold, and an athlete from England won silver.

About 90 Loudoun County first responders are competing in events this week.

The World Police & Fire Games, which commenced with opening ceremonies Friday and runs through Sunday, is an Olympic-style gathering for public safety workers. About 9,000 athletes from more than 60 countries are in Northern Virginia to compete in the Games, which includes more than 60 different sporting events.
