Happened to Annie last year right? Back injury if I'm not mistaken. In my opinion if that injury hadn't happened she would've 3-peated her title like Rich did and Briggs wouldn't be on top. So definitely possible. Look at the situation and someone like Mikko who hurt his knee. Once you're out that long, it seems incredibly hard to catch up to everyone else who over months has logged 100 more workouts than you while they're healthy
