AGRR magazine and the daily email newsletter are marking the days until the Auto Glass Technician Olympics by introducing this year's competitor field with a daily contestant profile.

Matt Thompson will travel from Laurel, Md., to Las Vegas to take on the field of competitors and represent Royal Autoglass, at the Auto Glass Technician Olympics. Representing an AGRSS-registered company, Thompson will bring his 19 years of experience to try to take the title of "World's Best Auto Glass Technician."

Married with three children, Thompson enjoys hunting and restoring hot rods when not spending time with his family.

He will be using Sika brand adhesives at the competition.

The Auto Glass Technician Olympics, now in its second year, is co-sponsored by the Independent Glass Association (IGA) and AGRR magazine. The event follows on the heels of the second annual Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) Conference and both events, along with the National Windshield Repair Association Conference and the Windshield Repair Olympics are co-located this year with the Auto Glass Expo @ NACE.

The events will be held November 1-4, 2006 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
