(WREX)- Just days after appearing on the NBC show The Titan Games, an NIU student is reflecting on his experience.

“If someone told me seven years ago I would be in America, I would be on the show and then lights and cameras were going to be on me, I would say they were lying,” said Covenant Falana.

He appeared on the February 14th episode of the show. Falana, who is originally from Nigeria, submitted a workout video of himself to get onto the show. Falana competed in the tower drop where he lost to another competitor. Falana says he still had a good experience on the show.

“Being on the Titan Games was amazing,” he said. “I got to meet The Rock, so that’s nice. That was my second time on a plane, coming from Nigeria. So, it was a whole experience for me because I got to be on a plane again, which was super nice.”

Falana says he is already back in the gym training.
