CrossFit HQ ruled that Viktor Langsved, a member of CrossFit Nordic Original’s team, was in violation of Affiliate Cup Eligibility Requirements, and was disqualified from competing June 10 – 12 at the Strength in Depth Semifinal.

HQ says they’re confident in the evidence to disqualify Viktor from competing, but Viktor says he’s confident in the material he provided CrossFit that should have allowed him to compete.

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Brian Friend to discuss what new information he’s learned about the case, what this means for teams moving forward, and some advice on how athletes can prevent this from happening in the future.
