Joshua Polera. 2nd, Primary Category, Spelling Bee of Canada, Ontario Championship Finals. City Hall, Toronto

“There was no way in hell I could lose if I ran up the wall and broke a beer bottle over my head. In my mind I had won, to me it was done. The guy announced the winner, and he said the other dude’s name. I was sure I had won, but sometimes the bloodiest guy doesn’t win.”

2nd, Air Guitar Finals
Sneeky Dees Club, Toronto

In 2nd: The Face of Defeat, Sandy Nicholson documents the competitors who are forgotten about and under-celebrated – the second-place finishers.
