2014 CrossFit Regionals: Europe Preview

2014 Europe Regional

The 2014 Europe Regional takes place this weekend (May 16-18) in Copenhagen, Denmark with three more qualifying spots for the CrossFit Games up for grabs in each division.

Here’s a quick preview of the Region and a closer look at the top female and male athletes competing in the three day competition:


Once again, the men’s division will be very open in Europe 2014 with a number of up and coming athletes pushing for a Games berth.

With 2009 Games champion Mikko Salo not competing due to another injury, and last year’s Regional winner Lacee Kovacs withdrawing due to health problems, we could see a new Europe champion crowned in 2014.

2012 Regional champ Frederik Aegidius will be one of the favourites to finish the weekend on the podium as will top qualifier in Europe Jakob Magnusson. 21 year-old Icelander Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson is another big name to keep an eye out for.
