Sara Sigmundsdottir shared the news in an exclusive sit down interview that she’s going to be heading to Barcelona, Spain at the end of the month as one of eight Nike athletes who each mentor and coach a different team in the annual Freakest Challenge competition. The format of this year’s competition has changed to include teams from across Europe, each with one Nike athlete as coach and mentor during the tournament-style event.
Sara Sigmundsdottir: “The community in CrossFit is why we do CrossFit. We just connect on a different level. In Iceland it’s like being in a tribe almost. That atmosphere and that spirit in [the Freakest Challenge] is just something else.”
The Teams: Six are from across Europe and two are from Spain.
- CrossFit 77Feet
- Area CrossFit
- CrossFit 4 Friends
- CrossFit Minus
- Again CrossFit
- CrossFit La Nau
- CrossFit Torredembarra
More details: With a little less than three weeks before the competition kicks off, (February 1), we’ll start finding out the names of the other seven athlete coaches. The event will be live streamed and the Morning Chalk Up crew will be on the ground giving you exclusive insights from the competition floor.
