4. Bridges Got Left Behind
Unlike Smith, Josh Bridges was one of those names in the running to get a serious shot at the No. 1 slot. The 31-year-old missed the Games in 2012 due to military deployment, but came into 2013 strong and inspired to win. Bridges came out of the gate fast and hard with a solid 3rd place finish in the pool, followed by a win in the Legless, Naughty Nancy, and the 2007 event, but in a moment that shocked everyone, the wheels fell off when he stumbled into a 28th place finish in Part 1 of The Cinco event. Although the SoCal local rallied back to finish second in Part 2 of The Cinco event, his costly slip up dropped him way down to 7th overall. Still, Bridges took home $12,000 from individual event winnings. We’ll all be routing for him again in 2014 and hope to see him strengthen his weaknesses.
