Josh Bridges began his CrossFit career in 2005 and is five-time Games veteran. A former U.S. Navy SEAL and collegiate wrestler, Bridges knows what it takes to get the job done.
He won three of his five regional competitions and finished on or near the podium in three Games appearances, with a career-best finish of second place in 2011.
Though Bridges shocked fans when he failed to qualify for the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games, he made his comeback in 2016 after retiring from the military, taking a 13th-place finish as the oldest—and at five-foot-five, shortest—individual male at the Games.
Josh returned to the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games after taking 3rd place at the West Regional.
