Fittest Man Alive!

Mikko Salo: The Cyborg from CrossFit Ireland on Vimeo.

We will be hearing and seeing a lot more from this man that claimed the title Fittest MF out there. He finished second on the run, right behind Chris Spealer, and I do mean just a couple of seconds. Next was the deadlift workout, he placed 17th on that. Well, let me just say that he deadlifted 495lbs and failed on the final lift of 505. There were 16 competitors total that completed 505 including Jeremy Thiel, so that is why he got 17th. The rest of the weekend he would do equally as impressive.

Like coach said earlier this year, "whoever wins the Crossfit Games, everyone is going to immediately want to know where did he come from and what the hell has he been doing."

Well, I want to know, and I will find out. Congrats Mikko.
