Katrin Davidsdottir Talks About How She Feels Losing Her CrossFit Games Crown

After two wins in a row, Katrin talks about how it feels to be beaten to the top spot, and what lessons she has learnt from the experience.

“You win .. or you learn.”


“I’m trying to wrap my head around this whole season. Mostly just the fact that it is over. This is certainly not the results we wanted but in a weird sense this might have been my favorite CrossFit Games so far .. we got to FIGHT & we got to LEARN so much more than any of the times we stood on top of the podium. Giving it everything we have, regardless of circumstances, is something Ben talks to me about alllllllll the time .. now we got to live it.

I’ve been on both sides of the story where at the end of it all my name is called & also when someone else’s is .. and that hurts. When I know we CAN win .. It hurts. We can still walk away with our head held high & no regrets. I feel like you can only regret something & it truly be a mistake if you don’t learn from it. If you learn, you win.

The competition is AHHMAZING, my competitors are absolutely incredible athletes & it is nothing at all to be ashamed of to be standing behind them at the end of it all. They really impress me. And they REALLY give me fire for this whole upcoming year 💥😈🔥💜 I can’t wait to be back .. 2018 is in trrrrrrouble hehe

THANK YOU @crossfitgames@crossfit@thedavecastro, all the judges, volunteers & YOU GUYS for putting up this whole event & making it what is is .. it allows all of us to day in & day out all year round do what we absolutely love the most .. & then bring it to light at this amazing event 💥❤️🌟😍

More thoughts to come & my TEAM 💕 & support system deserves a whole thank you post alllllll to themselves.

Okkkayyyy – Longest post everrrrrrrrrrr .. OUT 👋🏼😘 xoxo”

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.
