Default Congratulations Josh Everett!

Awesome work, Josh!

2nd place in the CF Games, the only person from last year's top three to improve his position this year.

All of this at age 32 and having never touched the "juice".

Josh did awesome - he was so close to winning too. And he did 2 of the events with the biggest tears on his hands I've ever seen.

I actually thought he was going to win but Jason came out of nowhere so props to him as well. Extremely impressive! Congrats.

Hey Steven were you there?

I was watching the finale and it was freaking close. I think Josh missed a lift in the 25-30 range that cost him the title. Although still an amazing effort with all those tears on his hand.

Nah, I wasn't.. man, that sucks if he did though. Still impressive though to medal at both CF games especially with the increased competition this time around.

Yeah, tears were from the pull-ups - pretty much every competitor shredded their hands.

He really did great. We all were proud and screamed our faces off. Mary (his wife) also kicked major butt even though her hands were torn off too.

He will take it next year... FO SHO!
