There are no age limits to participating in the Confederation of Reserve and Medical Reserve Officers competition. The teams of three have to work as one in order to have the best results. Here, one man catches his breath while his teammate helps a third member through the course.

From Aug. 3 to 10, Quebec City hosted the Interallied Confederation of Reserve and Medical Reserve Officers (CIOMR). Hundreds of reservists from 23 countries gathered for military competitions at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier or at a symposium on technology in downtown Quebec City.
