10. SAM BRIGGS BEATS THE BOYS

Still jet lagged, Sam Briggs became a force to be reckoned with on the 7km Trail Run. Running through the dusty mountains and wooded ravines, she started at the front of the pack, and kept a strong pace with the leading guys. Towards the middle of the event, as athletes began to thin out more, she passed more and more competitors, and looked calm and resolute.

She finished in first place for the women, and third overall, beating 38 of the other guys! Only Mat Fraser and Josh Bridges were faster!

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.
