Roman finished 5th at the Dubai CrossFit Championship, qualifying so to the CrossFit Games. Later in the season he went on to win the Italian Showdown, finishing ahead of names like Scott Panchik, Noah Ohlsen and Lukas Esslinger.
His invite to the Games from the Dubai Sanctional will most likely be handed down to 8th place finisher Connor Duddy.
