Rappelling into a bull-riding rodeo event, crawling through dirt in a SWAT obstacle course and entering a burning building with firefighters.
These could be action movie stunts by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Hollywood star turned California governor.
But they were all done by another governor earning a reputation for public displays of physical prowess — Eric Greitens of Missouri.
The 43-year-old Greitens — the nation’s second-youngest state executive — revels in the attention, posting videos of his action adventures on Facebook and even using them to help stay fit while keeping a demanding schedule.
In one feat of strength, Greitens visited an indoor rock climbing business and easily scaled two walls as media cameras rolled. Greitens was at the veteran-owned business to announce an initiative to eliminate all start-up business fees for veterans in Missouri.
