“Modern-Day Viking Warrior
After sitting out the 2013 CrossFit Games due to a back injury, Annie Thorisdottir—named the Fittest Woman on Earth the two prior years—came back strong in 2014, placing second. And she certainly wasn’t a poor sport about it, breaking down in tears in a press conference after. While her ability to bang out the toughest WODs is impressive and we’d love to be able to burpee and squat like her, it’s her refusal to give up that is most admirable.”
