Mikko Salo

posted on 2011.10.06, under Photos, portraits

In 2009, in Aromas, California, a champion was crowned.  Mikko Salo from Finland not only won the 2009 CrossFit Games but also the hearts of the CrossFit community.  Mikko contributed to the legend that is CROSSFIT.

He worked hard, seemed unstoppable, and popularized the “no lying down” rule after a grueling workout. Mikko explained to the CrossFit Community in a variety of videos that he does not like to lie down after a workout out, like a wounded animal.

Mikko is rarely seen with his shirt off, but on a recent visit to Rogue headquarters in Columbus, Ohio I was able to get a few rare shots of Mikko and Dan Bailey (6th place at the CrossFit Games 2011).
