If there is anyone in the CrossFit space who is deserving of the title International Man of Mystery it is Facundo Etchecolatz. 

The Argentinian native has resided in Europe for quite some time now, but he is a regular at the biggest CrossFit events over the past decade as much as anyone. If you’re lucky enough to know Facundo, you might know him from any number of jobs and roles he’s filled over the years. 

Where he started

He got his start working for the CrossFit Media department (first as a volunteer) in 2013 and worked closely with Rory McKernan for years. He expanded from there and has become a critical part of the Power Monkey team with Dave Durante, and the Aerobic Capacity team with Chris Hinshaw. Through those endeavors, he was introduced to Rich Froning who eventually brought Facundo on to coach the Mayhem Freedom team. In the meantime he coaches dozens of athletes all over the world, and this year, three of the four athletes he had competing in Semifinals, qualified for the CrossFit Games.
