Each or any?

Alex just said "Victory is possible for each of you."

I immediately thought: that's not right. I would have to say "any (one) of you" - because "each" of them could only win in a three-way tie.

Yet, thinking about it, certainly for each of them victory is a possibility.

Is a possibility the same as possible?
