“A Champion Withdraws”
2009 CrossFit Games champion Mikko Salo has withdrawn from competing in the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games. Due to an abdominal tear, Salo determined he could not compete in the multi-day competition that kicks off next week in Carson, Calif.
After sitting out of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury, Salo returned in 2013 to finish the CrossFit Games Open in first place in Europe. He followed that performance with a second-place finish at the Europe Regional with two first-place finishes in Events 1 and 7.
This is a big disappointment for Salo’s fans. We all wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him compete next year.
