Dove Leopold is a man of his word. After losing a bet with a friend, Leopold agreed he would attempt to be the first person to ever skip rope across Canada.

"It was a stupid bet over a trivia question," says Leopold. "We agreed the loser would skip rope across Canada. I lost so now I am doing this."

When asked how long he thought it will take him complete his mission, Leopold responded by saying: "To tell you the truth, I have no idea. All I know is that winter is coming, so this is really going to suck."

Pat Kelly spoke with a less-than-enthusiastic Leopold to learn more about why he is so committed to completing this challenge.
