Ever since Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson finished 3rd at the 2015 CrossFit Games, he has basically been known as the “Unofficial King of Europe” thanks to his consistent high finishes at the Games.

In fact, since that 2015 finish he has finished inside the top ten at the Games every single year, until this year where he finished 11th (tied for 10th in points with Jelle Hoste who took the spot via tiebreaker with a test win).

Throughout the past 9 years however, he has had to fight off his biggest European rival Jonne Koski, who has also been phenomenal, with five top-ten finishes at the Games as well.
