4. Annie Thorisdottir
Weight: 152 pounds
The 2011 and 2012 champ, ‘Iceland Annie’ has had a rough past couple of years, injury-wise, with a back injury that caused her to sit out the 2013 Games, and an impressive second-place finish in last year’s games, despite appearing not fully recovered. “She’s one of the most complete athletes, with strength, aerobic capacity, and gymnastics skills,” Nief says.
“Annie looks even stronger than when she won the Games,” Jentgen adds. We’re excited to see what this means this year as Icelandic athletes continue to get more and more involved in CrossFit.Back to top
