Northern Illinois University student competes in ‘The Titan Games’


DEKALB (WREX) – If you watched Thursday night’s episode of, “The Titan Games,” you might have noticed one of the contestants is a student at Northern Illinois University.

Covenant Falana competed on the show. Originally from Nigeria, Falana moved to the United States for high school.

“I have worked hard to build the body of a titan,” said Falana. “But it’s not about how much you can lift. It’s really how much heart you have. And it’s a big chest and elastic heart.”

Falana competed in the tower drop where he almost won, but was ultimately defeated.
