2009 CrossFit Champion Mikko Salo Back in Training

Mikko Salo the 2009 CrossFit Games Champ has been off the CrossFit scene for some time now.

After a ruptured eardrum during the first event of the 2011 Games, and suffering a knee injury that forced him out the 2012 season, it seems like an eternity since we have seen this fan favorite.

Yet a recent video posted by Rogue Fitness Europe shows Salo is once again back in training.

Since Salo’s win in 2009, CrossFit has grown exponentially with many new names and up and coming athletes working their way through the ranks. So it will be interesting to see if the layoff has helped or hinder Salo’s performance or if level of competition has surpassed him.

Yet fans will not need to wait long as the 2013 CrossFit Open is only just around the corner.
