    Everyone who comes on here saying Congrats Well Done have no idea about these competitions.

    The guy who got the Gold Medal DID NOT WIN his drink was good enough to be rated at gold level.

    The Silver for the team wasn't second place and shows how poor the team is.

    Bronze is a joke its like a medal for competing as I stated earlier when this team was announced, nothing good came from this the only gold won was by a 5 year exp member.

    POOR. POOR SHOW BVI
