When you talk about all-time greats, Ryan Vierra tops the list. This winner of five World Championships also finished runnerup six more times. Vierra was an 11-time US Champion, setting a few world records along the way, and won a staggering 250+ professional competitions; let that number sink in for a moment.
Vierra won his first World Championship in 1996 and his last in 2006; and when he finally hung up the kilt, cemented almost two decades of dominance.

Ryan passed in February 2021 from a battle with cancer. There is a nice obituary here: https://www.allenmortuary.com/obituaries/ryan-neil-vierra/?fbclid=IwAR2Bq-IeYVyW7Gsf5Nyg6q4AXxcQhM8tfMUdq2VkGBvkI9naFbP9RmYSmew
