Twenty-seven-year-old Lazar Djukic from Serbia has never finished outside of the top 10 at the CrossFit Games and has gone three straight years of top-nine overall placings from 2021-2023.

Throughout his three-year career so far, he has:

  • Two CrossFit Games event wins
  • 19 top-10 Games event finishes
  • Two European Semifinal championships
