BK Gudmundsson Reflects on The Open, Regionals and The 2017 CrossFit Games

"All of a sudden the Open, the Regionals and the Games are finished When I look at the past days, weeks and months I truly am proud of myself."

Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson: “The “Open” was really fun and the “Meridian Regionals” went absolutely as planned with a first place finish. Then 100% of my focus was diverted to the Games. Me, Frederik and Annie joined forces and had a really good training camp in Fond Du Lac and once the Games started in Madison I was as ready as I have ever been. I would have loved to finish on the podium again but a 6th place finish is something I am absolutely happy about. I have proved to myself that I’m one of the top 8 in the world for the third time in a row but I hunger for more and I´ve got the ambition to reach higher🏆 •

This weekend there were ups and downs and a massive amount of experience was gained. I have a clear vision on where I want to be next year and even though I’m SO sore and tired right now I really can’t wait to go back to the gym to kickstart 2018 season!💥”

Last but not least I want to thank Katla María Ketilsdóttir for keeping me grounded and focused. For being my biggest supporter and greatest motivator. For following me to the competition floor and making sure that I have everything I need whenever I need it. And of course for being the one and only love of my life ❤️•

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
