Re: Josh Bridges

I think Bridges is an interesting contrast to most the other competitors. It looks like he does a lot more aerobic work than anyone else, even by his performance in events other than the first one.

Re: Josh Bridges

Just found this on the Journal re the 1st WOD in the '11 games

Before the event begins, Joshua Bridges questions his chances of winning.

“This is out of my comfort zone, so we’ll see how it goes,” he says. “I hate running and swimming, so it should be pretty fun.”


I thought you guys said he was a SEAL ???

I'd imagine he was being sarcastic.

Re: Josh Bridges

I never heard of the guy until I came into work today, and my DIVO (Division Officer) told me he was a SEAL. So I'm assuming that he is, or was at some point. Either way, go NAVY!!!

But if you noticed, Bridges destroyed everyone on the first Games workout, which was right up a SEAL's alley. I'm guessing he's logged quite a bit more time doing ocean swims and beach runs than anyone else who competed.

I don't see any shame in placing 2nd out of the tens of thousands who started the whole Open competition back in March, and it's definitely not a knock on the SEALs in any way.
+1 no doubt.

The announcer said it during the introductions of the last heat of event 7/8/9 as he was coming out of the tunnel. I didn't know he was military at all up until that point.

Tons of SPEC OP types in CF...

Zach Forrest (12th overall/3rd on the first event) was a SEAL too.

Re: Josh Bridges

Would definitely love to hear more about his training and nutrition.
