Far East Throwdown Recap

It was a weekend to put any doubt to rest. From the 1st event until the very last one, Roman Khrennikov, Seungyeon Kim and KT CrossFit Kolesnikov Team have stayed on top of the leaderboard.

Choi, the athlete from the Republic of Korea, won 4 out of 6 events, with the other two in the top 3. Khrennikov also won 4 events, but his worst placement was on workout 4 where he finished 4th. Team Kolesnikov, on the other hand, dominated every event in the Far East Throwdown, much like Annie Thorisdottir did in the Lowlands Throwdown and Rich Froning’s team did at the Syndicate Crown.

Although it might seem unfair to compare, but Tia-Clair Toomey was the only other individual athlete, from either division, to have earned more points than Khrennikov or Choi.
