In this excellent episode of the Snorri Bjorns Podcast Show, he interviews Icelandic CrossFit star Sara Sigmundsdottir.
Being friends, they explore topics in much greater depth that your average generic interviews and talk through topics such as Sara’s stress, over-training, negative thoughts and competition depression. Sara even thought about quitting CrossFit after 2016, but here she explains her journey and history, motivation and much more.
Snorri also translated another great episode with Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson after his outstanding comeback at the 2017 Europe Regionals. For more episodes, subscribe to his channel out and follow him on instagram:
Three years ago I had an idea for a photo shoot and sent @sarasigmunds, a somewhat promising CrossFit athlete, a message to see if she was up for it. Weeks pass and an answer is not in sight. I get offered to join a training camp in Mallorca where elite CrossFit athletes train for the biggest competition of their lives, The CrossFit Games, and Sara is one of them. As soon as I arrive at the athletes house in Mallorca I meet Sara for the first time and confront her with the brutal “seen” and not replying to my message. She punches me in the shoulder, says “sorry, bro” and from that point on friendship was established 🏋️♀️📸 After truly great times in Mallorca, the athletes travel to freezing Los Angeles and I head home to sunny Iceland. It didn’t take me more than 2-3 days to book a month long trip to Los Angeles and leave the country again. No regrets, I had the time of my life taking pictures, training with world class athletes, making friends, eating breakfast burritos, being stuck in traffic and witnessing @bk_gudmundsson and Sara both getting a podium finish at The @crossfitgames🏅 The picture above, shot for a @waterofchampions campaign, makes me think of how happy I am to have made the decision of joining a bunch of CrossFit athletes on a training camp in Mallorca. Resulting in me getting the chance to work with one of the nicest, funniest and entertaining person I’ve got to know – who by the way, still doesn’t reply to my messages 🤷♀️ ➖ #livelongandprosper #crossfit #crossfitgames #intheopen #profoto #profotoglobal #profotoglobal #strobist #adobedraw #sonya7rii #sonyimages #sonyalpha #sarasigmundsdottir #crossfitgirl #girlswholift #dottir #portraitphotography #sigmundsdottir #bjornsdottir
