Mikko Salo

A native of Finland, Mikko Salo claimed the title of “Fittest Man on Earth” by winning the 2009 CrossFit Games in convincing fashion. In more recent years, Salo—still based out of his hometown of Pori—has been working as a firefighter by day and training and coaching CrossFit by night. One of his top students is fellow countryman and Rogue athlete Jonne Koski, whom Mikko helped guide to a pair of Regional titles in 2014 and 2015.

Salo traveled to the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games as Koski’s coach. And while the 35 year-old may not return to the Games again as a competitor himself, those who witnessed or competed against Mikko still recognize him as one of the all-time greats—a fierce competitor with a tireless work ethic.
