CrossFit Mayhem athlete and full-time firefighter Angelo DiCicco is moving onto the next stage of the CrossFit Games season. He competed in the Open for the first time since 2018 and finished Quarterfinals in the 87th position, well above the cutoff line. Now he is on the cusp of completing an incredible return to Madison, WI. 

Remind me: DiCicco won the Boys (14-15) division in 2015, finished third in the 16-17 division in 2016, and then won the 16-17 division in 2017. He joined the CrossFit Mayhem Independence team for the 2018 season but had to withdraw due to multiple bulging discs and the diagnosis of Degenerative Disc Disease.
