Although some have come close, no competitor had yet to achieve total victory and claim the prize. After seven seasons, somebody finally completed all four stages and 23 obstacles of Mt. Midoriyama. Correction. Two people did.

Geoff Britten was the first to complete the once-impossible course, but rock climber Isaac Caldiero bested his time by just a few minutes to earn the title of American Ninja Warrior and walk away with the $1 million prize. At least Britten has the distinction of doing it first, albeit just due to race order.

“Winning this event always seemed impossible,” said the 33-year-old Caldiero “As the first American Ninja Warrior I want to use this opportunity to inspire the world to find your impossible and conquer it.”

It’ll be interesting to see if more competitors conquer Mt. Midoriyama next season. Or will producers increase the difficulty even more now that two men have finished the course? Here’s hoping a woman can also reach the summit. If you missed it, check out both Britten and Caldiero’s incredible runs below.

Sports Stud: Leigh Halfpenny

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring a Wales and British Lions international rugby union player named Leigh Halfpenny.

Halfpenny is sponsored by Lucozade Sport, UnderArmour, and Land Rover among other companies. In 2013, the 26-year old fullback was voted sexiest man in Wales and it isn’t difficult to see why. He’s incredibly handsome, has gorgeous eyes, wavy hair, a chiselled body and super muscular legs. I could go on, but you get the idea.

Check out his photos and video below!

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Sam Stanley publicly came out as gay. The 23-year-old England Sevens player becomes the first English rugby union professional to come out of the closet.

“I was standing on a bridge about four or five years ago, overlooking a motorway in Essex,” Stanley told the publication. “However, looking back, the idea that I would jump was ridiculous but it was as if I was thinking that I could get rid of the pain in one go. You are so worried about what people will think and I thought I couldn’t be a macho rugby player the way I was, and there was nothing else I wanted to do with my life.”

Stanley has been in a five-year-relationship with his partner Laurence. He tells the publication he has gone to great pains to cover up his relationship because he thought it would ruin his rugby career. His announcement, so far, has been met with overwhelming support from fans. Check out pics of Stanley below.

The 2015 US Open kicks off in just a couple of days and I can’t wait. I’ll be watching intently to see if Serena Williams can win the final grand slam of the year to score that all-elusive calendar Grand Slam.

With all eyes on Flushing Meadows the next couple of weeks, I thought I’d share this slick new campaign from H&M. The faux neon court is brilliant.

Czech-born tennis player Tomas Berdych, who’s seeded No. 6 at the event, has worked with the brand for a tennis apparel collection since 2013. His latest offerings are IMHO his best yet. Check out some of the pieces below.

Sports Stud: Mike Lee

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud we’re heading into the ring with studly American pro boxer Mike Lee. The 28-year old light heavyweight boxer has boxed professionally since 2010. He graduated from Notre Dame studying finance, but decided to pursue his passion for boxing instead.

Mike Lee has had an endorsement with Subway and even did a SuperBowl commercial back in 2013. Who knows, maybe he’ll be the new main official Subway spokesperson since that position is now up for grabs!

Check out his pictures and videos below!

Since it’s hump day, I thought it was only fitting I share this juicy set of buns.

Canadian hockey player Sean Avery, also best known for being Andy Cohen’s buddy, bared nearly all on Instagram. The 35-year-old showed off his ample buttocks to promote South Hampton Sweat, a fitness festival he’s hosting this weekend with his fiancée Hilary Rhoda.

Avery looks fine from the front but from the back, it’s a whole different story. His jockstrapped-cradled butt is beyond tap worthy. Give it a look below.

Sports Stud: Keegan Hirst

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring none other than Keegan Hirst. The 27-year old British rugby player became the first British rugby player to come out as gay. Speaking exclusively to Mirror UK, he talked about his struggle and decision to come out of the closet:

“At first I couldn’t even say ‘I’m gay’ in my head, let alone out loud. Now I feel like I’m letting out a long breath that I’ve held in for a long time.” Keegan adds: “I had a wife and kids. I’ve been a builder, doorman, worked in factories – I play rugby. I tick every macho box. How could I be gay? I’m from Batley for goodness sake. No one is gay in Batley… The only time I felt free of the torment was when I stepped on the rugby pitch. Now I feel free.”

Congratulations to Hirst! I hope it inspires others in sport to be true to themselves as well. Check out his pictures and interviews below.
