This is my 5th year at the CrossFit Games. Every year the tests gets harder, competition gets tougher and the athletes rise to the occasion. I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in, but my back was not having it this year. Making the choice not to take the floor is always hard as a competitor, but taking the floor knowing that you will not meet your own expectations are even worse. Now, it’s about getting @anniethorisdottir And @bk_gudmundsson on the podium.
The 32-year-old finished 21st overall at last year’s Games. His best finish at the Games came in 2013, where he took 15th overall.
