Anderson Wins Windshield Repair Olympics


Matt Anderson of Novus Auto Glass in Spokane Valley, Wash., took home first place in today’s second Annual Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics. Anderson, a first-time contestant, says he has been preparing for the competition everyday for the last six years since he opened his own Novus franchise.

“I do this everyday,” he said. “Preparing essentially involved making sure I’d have everything I have everyday here in Las Vegas.”

When asked if he was surprised by the win, Anderson notes he felt confident in his ability--but unsure of the unexpected.

“I was confident coming in, but it’s really hard to be sure how your going to do in something like this,” he said.

And the most difficult part of the competition was the part most might enjoy, says the humble Anderson.

“[The hardest part was] being in the spotlight,” he told™/AGRR magazine.

Rich DiMassa of Dents Out Plus in Torrance, Calif., took second place, and Kelly Ditto of Cindy Rowe Auto Glass in Harrisburg, Pa., took third.
