Brooke Wells dislocated her elbow during Event 12 at the 2021 CrossFit Games.
The following day she posted on instagram in response to the unfortunate event. This forced her to medically withdraw from the competition. As a result she finished in 20th place.
“Thank you for the overwhelming messages of support. There is no community like this and although I am heartbroken, I’m thriving off your energy and love.
Last night I dislocated my elbow during the max snatch event, and was forced to medically withdrawal.
I dedicated my life to being prepared for this year’s CrossFit Games and I’m absolutely the fittest I’ve ever been.
To not be able to fight for a podium spot…crushes me, but I’ll be back.
Thank you to the extremely professional medical staff that treated me on-site. This is a speedbump and it’s all part of my journey.
God’s plan is bigger than mine.”
