Mikko Salo at the 2014 CrossFit Games

2009 Champion Mikko Salo is back in California for this year’s CrossFit Games.

The Finnish champion, who withdrew from this year’s CrossFit season due to another injury, is in LA coaching Jonne Koski, the 2014 Europe Regional winner.

19 year-old Koski has been training under the guidance of Salo for the past year and so far it seems to have paid off, with the youngster sitting in 8th position after Day 1 of competition.

We caught up with Mikko Salo after The Beach event on the first day of competition to hear his thoughts on Koski, whether he can win the CrossFit Games, and if he still plans on competing as an individual next year.

Check out the full interview in the video above.
