Annie is on her way back to the CrossFit Games this year after an impressive performance at Regionals.

STRONG AND EXPERIENCED

Annie combines grit, determination and impressive strength. Her years of experience have paved the way for other Icelandic female athletes such as Katrin, Sara and Thuridur.  

But how did she start?

AT THE BEGINNING OF HER CROSSFIT CAREER

Annie’s background is gymnastics and track and field. Her first CrossFit Games appearance was in 2009 where she learnt how to snatch and do a muscle-up.

#CFG10: Annie's First Muscle up

#CFG10: Flashing back to the time when then 19-year-old Annie Thorisdottir showed up to the 2009 CrossFit Games with all of the work capacity but very few technical skills.During the weekend, Thorisdottir learned how to do GHD sit-ups, parallette handstand push-ups and double-unders. In the final event, she got her very first muscle-up while the Aromas crowd roared.

Prior to the competition, Annie had never snatched before, so she had to learn the exercise in order to compete. It shows how far The CrossFit Games has come in the last few years!
