Thuri Helgadottir Responds to Ricky Garard’s Drug Ban

Icelandic CrossFit Games Athlete Thuri Helgadottir answers Garard.


“His words (you can find them here) are my exact thoughts on this. I am disappointed in Garards actions, but happy that the @crossfitgames are coming down hard on these issues.”


“In response to Garard I would like to say: Don’t try to justify your actions by dragging us all down with you. If you know of people cheating, name some names, contact HQ with your info and do your part in upholding the integrity of the sport. Don’t make us all look questionable in order to make yourself look better! 👊”

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.
