That’s really cool that you happened to hear my name while watching the live-feed! And yes, the competition was tough. I took second by only 2.5 kilos. I remember one guy who was in second after squats and benches who didn’t even make top 5 after deadlifts. I won’t hold it against you for not recognizing me. I’m only 70 pounds heavier than I was at 2013 Grip Nationals...😆 Hey, thanks for checking it out, Matt! Great to hear from you again. 😊
Way to go Eric! Kristy and I watched a ton of the live feeds over Fri-Sat-Sun. At one point, we clicked on the wrong video and for a split second I saw your name. I was like "I KNOW HIM!" But then after that we could not find your flight to watch. But I looked up your scores and saw that you did really well. I'm glad you posted the video because I couldn't find that either. Amazing that you took 2nd! Sounds like the competition was stacked. Also, side note, I would not have recognized you in a million years! Bearded and all. Looking strong! Congratulations on finishing on the podium!!!
