For four straight years, Roman Khrennikov sat back and watched other athletes compete at the CrossFit Games. Like those athletes, he earned his place to compete but couldn’t make it to the states due to visa struggles.

Now that he’ll finally compete on the big stage, will he break the top 10, or even top 5?

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Chase Ingraham and Dex Hopkins to discuss why they both think his fitness is there, but other variables are going to be that deciding factor.
