Heydavid17 was one of the more noticeable personalities in the community before ultimately being banned in I'm A Speedrunner 10 for his actions during the tournament; which was him not only dropping out but cheating by playing for another competitor (Supster131)

Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 8Edit

Being drawn in Group B he went through his group with ease. He defeated his fellow dane TheDANISHdynamite in a not at all close race to defeat the first boss in Gex 1. His next victory was against Oryps100 in a race to get 3 remotes and beat the Boss level in Gex 3. His last match was his toughest match. It was against TheAFH013 in another Gex 1 race.

His Round 2 match against ThePlatformKing came after much delay due to both players being busy. In the end they recorded their runs separately. It was a Gex 2 race. David won in a close race to beat the second boss.

Round 3 saw David drawn against ShoReWol. They did a race to get 3 remotes in Western Station. They were neck and neck during the run, but David took an edge at some point due to them having different routes. Eventually David won and moved on to the Grand Final.

The Grand Final was comprised of David, CrystalFissure, CrashBandiSpyro12, TheSubpixel and Nintendogen64. Because of personal reasons the Grand Final was done without David. David sent his footage 5 weeks after the initial Grand Final, which made him get a 10-minute penalty. This 10 minute penalty proved costly as David finished 3rd. If not for the penalty David would have won the tournament.
