Behind him, Lazar Đukić finished all events of the weekend within the top 10 and stacked two event wins himself.
On the women’s side, Kristin Holte proved she’s nowhere near finished with four event wins and all performances within the top 6. Notably, the 2019 Second Fittest Woman on Earth improved her Friendly Fran time by 16 seconds compared to her performance on the same workout at last year’s Games.
