“Former Vice President Biden has randomly challenged people in the audience to a pushup contest even if they’re in walkers. ... Do you think you could take him?” the supporter questioned, according to The Washington Post.

“My educated and informed guess would be yes,” Gabbard replied. “However, Joe Biden may have some superhuman pushup ability that nobody knows about. But I would take most people to a pushup challenge.”

Then the man joined Gabbard on stage, where the two competed before Gabbard ultimately won. 

The contest comes after Biden got into a testy exchange at an Iowa event in December, challenging a supporter to a push-up contest.

"You want to check my shape, man, let's do pushups together here, man," Biden told him. "Let's run. Let's do whatever you want to do. Let's take an IQ test. OK?"

Ultimately the two did not partake in a pushup contest. Which Democratic candidate will do pushups next? Only the primary season can tell.
