Annie Gets the Gold Again - Annie Thorisdottir is 2012 CrossFit Champion

We’re all very proud of Annie ’Mist’ Thorisdottir - who is officially ’Fittest Woman on Earth’ second year in a row. This year saw the competition stretch over four gruelling days. Anyone who thinks that the Iron Man Triathlon or Olympic Decathlon are tricky events obviously has not witnessed the world of the CrossFit Games - with its 15 events - testing every single muscle of the athlete’s body - and combining athletics with gymnastics, weight-lifting and

Iceland celebrates another World Champion - Annie Mist is now officially 'Fittest Woman on Earth'

As you may have spotted on a previous blog, I have following Annie’s progress right throughout the 10 events and over the 3 days - really willing her on to win. She performed admirably in the opening beach run / swim / pull-ups / squats event, placing fifth.

 

Annie’s ’Ball Skills’ let her down badly in Event 2, and she made a disastrous error on the L-Sit, barely hitting the 30 second mark, when she is capable of at least twice that - even though she outpaced

Cheer Iceland's Annie Mist to Victory - Live Online at the 2011 Reebok Crossfit Games

As I explained in a blog post around about the same time last year, ’The Crossfit Games’ really are the alternative olympics, or even the endurance olympics. The winners of the 3-day games are officially crowned World’s Fittest Man and Woman - quite literally.

Over the 3 days, Friday to Sunday - every single muscle and sinew is tested as the athletes start with a mini triathlon, and then a mixture of athletics, gymnastic and weights-based disciplines. This is true full-body

Condensed, Extreme Olympics Live on the Internet

Iceland has another world-class athlete to be proud of. I happened to catch in the Icelandic News (Mbl) on Sunday morning, that Anníe Mist Þórisdóttir was leading the fittest female standings at the midway point of the 2010 CrossFit Games.


A brief search on the Internet later, and I was on the CrossFit Live page, watching the event in High Definition - direct from the Home Depot Centre in Carson California - the home of the LA Galaxy for those in the know. This
