Today’s workout is programmed by 2023 CrossFit Games rookie, Belgium’s Jelle Hoste. Hoste burst onto the elite CrossFit scene in 2023, placing 4th in the Europe Semifinal and then finishing 10th overall in his rookie campaign in Madison. His Games performance was highlighted by an event win in “Cross Country 5k” and other top-4 finishes in both “Ski-Bag” and “Muscle-Up Logs.” Prior to the 2023 season, Hoste’s best season finish was in 2021, when he placed 123rd in Europe in Quarterfinals.
