6 – Lazar Đukić Makes the Top 10
One athlete that didn’t get enough attention during the 2021 CrossFit Games was Lazar Đukić. The Serbian athlete qualified for the CrossFit Games in 2019 and 2020 but declined to compete that first year as he didn’t feel ready to go head-to-head against the best in the world.
Instead, he decided to delay his rookie year until he could prove to be a good match, which he did, finishing 9th overall in his first CrossFit Games this year.
Đukić started his weekend with a second-place finish in the swim and paddle event and would go on to earn himself 11 finishes in the top 15 out of 15 events, including an event win in Event 10.
Expect to see a lot more from this 25-year-old.
