Listen to an interview with Ted Gyhra, winner of several awards in the apprentice division at the 2021 Lineman's Rodeo.

For our December 2021 Line Life podcast, we are featuring the story, "Return to the Rodeo" and an interview with Field Editor Amy Fischbach and Ted Gyhra, who recently topped out as a journeyman lineman at Omaha Public Power District. 

Gyhra won first place in all four of the apprentice pole climbing events--pole climb, hurtman rescue, the obstacle course and the mystery event. He also was awarded second place overall in the municipal division of the competition.
