Icelanders did well at the CrossFit Games 2013

The Reebok CrossFit Games 2013 just finished last Sunday, and The Fittest on Earth were crowned. Unfortunately CrossFit queen and legend Annie Thorisdottir was injured and couldn't claim her title 'Fittest Woman on Earth' for the third consecutive year. But other Icelanders did well.

One Icelander in the Individual Competition

Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir was third in the European CrossFit Regionals earlier this year, earning a spot at the Games. She ended up in 24th place out of 44 women. A great job for the 20 year old.

Katrín Tanja rightfully made it to Shape's 10 Hottest and Fittest Women of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games. Click here to see the list.

On top of that, the Danish Frederik Ægidius competed out of Iceland as he trains a lot in CrossFit Reykjavík with his girlfriend Anníe Thorisdottir. Frederik was 15th in the Games out of 46 men. Great success.

 

Two Icelandic Teams at the Games

Two Icelandic teams competed in the Games as THOR (CrossFit Stodin) was 17th and Reebok CrossFit Reykjavík 19th, out of 43 teams.

On top of that, two Icelanders were competing for the Swedish team, Crossfit Nordic, which was 9th in the Games.

 

 

Fittest on Earth

Last Sunday, Rich Froning was crowned the Fittest Man on Earth for the 3rd consecutive year. In Anníe's absence, British Samantha Briggs claimed the title, Fittest Woman on Earth.

Annie vows to return ready to reclaim her title in 2014.
