Mikko Salo recounts the 7 kilometer run from the safety of Finland. He talks about the camaraderie of the weekend, and his introduction to Spealler on the last stretch of the run. "I don't know why I did it, it just came naturally... Hello, I'm Mikko... but I think it's the spirit of CrossFit. You are having this huge fight in the first event, for who will be number one and still we shook hands. It was quite nice."
Other than the run, most of the events were a blur to Mikko until he saw them on film. "I don't remember the events at the Games, they are not clear to me. It's quite funny to watch, I look and remember like ten things."
He was happy not to fully relive the events though. "I had flashbacks and thought, yes it was like that. But I did not feel that pain that is on my face."
