HARDIN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - An Elizabethtown athlete was back in the national spotlight Thursday on NBC’s “The Titan Games.”

Combat veteran Christopher Watts took on Budweiser delivery man James Jean-Louis in an incredible test of strength. Each man tried to make it to the Titan Championship, but Watts fell behind early in the competition.

Watts didn't quit, but in the end the effort was not enough. Watts took to social media Thursday to congratulate his competition.

Congratulations @bodyof_a_titan you did what you had to do! Titan Games @therock @carichampion #titangames #motivatekentucky
