We had ONE person complete stage 2 and go on to three. Stage three had no time limit but 8 strength obstacles.

The person - I think Brent of the huge family - failed at the upside down wall climb.

While this is sad - he is the FIRST person to complete the Ultimate Cliffhanger, which is always the third or fourth (forgot the placement) in that stage. So he is the first American to complete that challenge and therefore has finished the farthest in the course for the Americans now.

He also LITERALLY made it at the wire on stage 2 though - he tagged in at three-HUNDREDTHS of a second (that's 0.03 seconds) left in stage 2. That's how close it came to no one making it through stage 2 at all.
