I'll Take the Stairs

EIU grad among the world's leaders in competitive stair climbing

Despite spending his college years in a county where the tallest building is EIU's Stevenson Hall, Justin Stewart '11 is now one of the highest-ranked competitive stair-climber in the world.

So far in 2012, his first full year of racing, he has placed first in nine races (including Chicago's Hustle Up the Hancock and the 180-floor Presidential Towers event, where he set a new course record) and also took a respectable 17th-place finish in the Empire State Building Run Up.

If Stewart is still among the world's top three stair-climbers in August, he'll earn an all-expenses-paid trip to Columbia for the World Cup Championships.
