Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson went into the Europe Regional as the number 1 favourite. He finished the first day in 19th position, a bad result for an athlete that rarely found himself outside the top 5, but by the end of event 6 he had fought his way back up to fifth and earned his fifth trip to The CrossFit games.
