CROSSFIT NEWS – Stacie Tovar Will Retire After The 2017 CrossFit Games

The CrossFit legend will compete in her 8th and final Games this summer.

In a recent interview with WOWT News, Stacie Tovar stated:

“It’s been an awesome nine years, full of incredible memories. The people I’ve met, the communities I’ve been to has been incredible. But, all good things must come to an end eventually.”

Her and her husband Dustin own CrossFit Omaha, and she is looking forwards to spending more time on that aspect of her life.

“My time is nearing. I can’t quite recover like the younger guys. Now that I have this community, I want to give 150 percent to this and sometimes training gets in the way of that.” 

Tovar is fired up and motivated for Madison this year.

“There’s a little bit less pressure this year because it’s my final year. I’ve got nothing to lose. I’ve got everything to gain. I’m just out there to have a great time. I’m really just looking forward to taking a step back and just seeing what happens.”

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.
