CrossFit Games Athlete Injured in Bike Crash Forced to Withdraw from Competition

Bad luck for this Games athlete.

CrossFit Inc: “During the women’s Crit, Michele Fumagalli fell and rolled off her bike going around on the last turn of the final lap. The chain of her bike popped off, forcing her to pick up her bike and run across the finish line. She finished in 26th place.”

Fumagalli suffered an injury and after a meeting with the medical team was deemed unable to finish the competition.”

THE UNFORTUNATE CRASH

“Event 1 at the @crossfitgames was an absolute blast! But with 60yds to the finish-line I had an unfortunate crash, which left me with a broken and dislocated wrist, taking me out of the competition. I will be getting surgery in the next few days. 

So many emotions right now but working through them thanks to all the love and support from my family, coach, friends and entire @crossfit community. 

God has a plan, he gives us what we can handle and I know this will only make me a stronger and better person! Thank you to the medical staff for all your help today. I will be in Madison until Thursday evening, leaving after the opening ceremony’s in order to get back to Chicago for a Friday morning dr apt.”
