ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) -

The 7th annual Three Rivers Roleo log rolling tournament was held in Onalaska Saturday.

Athletes from around the world, as well as right here in La Crosse, participated in the event.

It's the second highest ranked tournament in the Midwest for pro-rollers. Organizers hope it opens more eyes to the sport.

"This is part of our history in Onalaska. On the site that we are currently on was a logging mill at one point and it ties us back to our roots back to our history,” said Three Rivers Log Rolling Tournament Director Katie Rick.

Rick is also a competitor. She went up against another UW-La Crosse log roller for the women's championship last year.
