This was not the first podium finish in a virtual challenge by Rogue for Stanislav Solodov. He was the winner of the “Pump-N-Row” challenge that combined the rowing machine and the bench press. Other previous virtual challenges held by Rogue Fitness include the “Bella Complex Challenge,” “The Cliffhanger Challenge,” and the “Bear Hug Challenge.” The latter tasked participants to hold a sandbag for as long as possible and was won by Taylor Williamson.

Prevost will compete at the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games held on July 27 through Aug. 1 in Madison, WI. She earned her spot by ranking first at the Atlas Games, one of the 10 CrossFit Semifinals that determined the Games roster. Likewise, Williamson and Andrea Nisler will compete at the Games as members of Team Mayhem Freedom alongside Chase Hill and four-time Fittest Man on Earth®, Rich Froning. Mayhem Freedom ranked first at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge to earn their Games spot.

Aside from the dates, location, and roster for the Games, a hint that the first event will consist of swimming and paddling was shared by CrossFit Games Director Dave Castro on July 5, 2021. We’ll see if Provost can translate the momentum from her “The Mule Challenge” victory to a stellar performance at the Games.
