Roman Khrennikov obliterated the competition at The Europe Regionals earlier this year and took a convincing first place against a tough field of competition. Unfortunately, he was sadly missed at The CrossFit Games after he was unable to acquire a visa in order to travel to the USA and compete.


This young athlete stormed her way to a solid second place finish at the 2018 CrossFit Games. She excelled across the wide variety of different events and demonstrated an exception ability to remain calm and focused when the pressure was on.
