He is the elite CrossFit athlete best known by his three initials: BKG. Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson has been a CrossFit staple since 2015 when he climbed onto the podium and took third at the CrossFit Games, and has since turned out to be one of the most decorated male competitors of an entire generation of athletes.

Guðmundsson is known for his high level of consistency, and there is basically only one title that has eluded him: CrossFit Games champion. The 29-year-old is set for another run at immortality, once again looking primed to gun for the top spot. So who is the quiet man from Iceland who tends to let his workouts do the talking? Well, we found out, 22-questions-style, uncovering the man behind the icy stare that’s colder than a Reykjavik snow storm.
