Ryan Atkins continued his world dominance in OCR with another win over the weekend. He is unstoppable this year. The signature BattleFrog course in Pittsburgh is one of the most highly anticipated races of their season. Athletes flocked to this unique course which featured various terrain as well as a swimming section in one of the mines.

This race marks a full year of dominance for Atkins on the BattleFrog circuit. He has remained undefeated since his win at this venue in 2014. Atkins dominance has been seen throughout the sport even prompting a Facebook page about his dominance.
