Icelandic powerhouse Annie Thorisdottir has announced she will be returning to compete as an individual for the upcoming CrossFit season. In 2022, she dipped her toes in the teams’ division.
The queen of Iceland is back! Annie Thorisdottir shared a video on her Instagram page announcing she will not be competing in a team again this year, but rather going solo.
“Madison 2023 as an individual,” she wrote.
Annie Thorisdottir is one of the best and most well-rounded female CrossFit athletes in the Sport and is considered a legend by many. She was the first female athlete to win the CrossFit Games back to back in 2011 and 2012. In 2014 she ended 2nd and in 2017 and 2021 she finished 3rd at the Games, showing how consistent and strong she is.
Annie Thorisdottir Short Dip Into Teams’ Division
Annie Thorisdottir surprised the world in January 2022 when she announced, after being crowned 3rd Fittest Woman on Earth the year before, that she would be forming a team for the CrossFit season.
Team CrossFit Reykjavik teamed her up with Lauren Fisher, Tola Morakinyo and Khan Porter. They finished 4th at the Games last year.
This year, Thorisdottir continued her experimentation in the teams’ division by getting together with personal friend Katrin Davidsdottir and 2nd Fittest Woman on Earth Mallory O’Brien to compete at Wodapalooza, in January, in Miami. They finished 2nd tied in points with winner Team BPN.
Although people could assume she would continue in a team this year, now with Rich Froning retiring from the teams’ division the crown is up for grabs, but Thorisdottir decided to return to her origins and fight for the crown of Fittest on Earth once again – the chance is higher now that Tia-Clair Toomey won’t be competing this year after revealing she is expecting a baby.
