What happened at the Europe Regional?
Gabriela Migala, at just 19 years of age, shocked the world when she won Event 1 in her one event career.
Andrey Ganin couldn’t put on a better performance, taking first place in Event 2 and 5. This would of been Ganin’s 1st CrossFit Games appearance, however in light of recent drug testing, he will not be competing at the Games this year due to his disqualification for breach of the CrossFit drug policy.
Watch out for Adrian Mundwiler’s comeback. In his second year of CrossFit, Adrian qualified for the 2016 CrossFit Games. Last year he was on his way to Regionals, but due to injury he had to pull out of the competition. Now he’s back in full force, taking out his second career event victory in Event 4.
Sara Sigmundsdottir is back in Europe, still the force she was before she left, and nothing less than impressive.
Karl Gudmundsson did what had to be done, turning things around in Event 3.
Event 3 was Kristin Holte’s sixth career event win at Regionals.
Roman Khrennikov was the star of the weekend and the Europe Regional.
It was Annie Thorisdottir’s 18th consecutive Top 10 event finishes and continues to make history, going to the CrossFit Games for the 9th time. And it was bitter sweet to find out that her boyfriend Frederik Ægidius will take the last qualifying spot to the 2018 CrossFit Games now that Andrey Ganin has been disqualified from the Games. This will be Frederik’s 4th appearance at the Games and we’re excited that these two amazing athletes can be competing together in Madison.
With an Event 6 win, and placing in the Top 5 on all 6 events, we welcome 21 year old Laura Horváth to the 2018 CrossFit Games! We can’t wait to see how Laura does at the Games. We believe this girl is a force to be reckoned with, so watch out for her in Madison!
