We love social media, and we hate social media, but when you’re an elite CrossFit athlete, it’s more than a petty popularity contest. Because, when it comes to gaining sponsors and being able to be a true professional athlete, followers matter. 

With that being said, the winner of this year’s Instagram Games—the athlete who picked up the most Instagram followers during the CrossFit Games week was Russia’s Roman Khrennikov.

Bronze medalist Khrennikov, who competed in the last two tests on a suspected broken foot, scooped up 61,004 new followers. As of Monday morning (August 7), he had 195,099 followers, a 45.49 percent increase from last Wednesday night (August 2).
