In this episode, we interview Annie Thorisdottir of Iceland (@anniethorisdottir) about what drives her to be the best CrossFit athlete in the world. Annie has finished on the podium 5 times in the last decade at the CrossFit Games with 2 first-place, 2 second-place, and 1 third place finish.
This year she finished a disappointing 12th after a change in format to the Games. We talk to her about how she will bounce back from that, plus dig into her training regiment and her diet before discussing her perspective on drug testing and clean sport culture within CrossFit.
Annie has a strong perspective on doping in sport, asking the question: "How could you stand on a podium knowing that you cheated?" She also calls for additional drug testing in order to maintain the integrity of the sport she loves.
Annie's energy and passion is infectious, and if you weren't a fan of her before, then you will be now!
