When the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games came to an end, Hungary’s fittest woman Laura Horvath stood on the podium in second place. The season marked her return to the top three after bursting onto the scene in 2018. She certainly put on a show this year all while working with a new coach, but not so new to CrossFit -- 2015 CrossFit Games champion, Ben Smith.  

One big thing: Following two seasons marred by injuries and other issues, Horvath made her triumphant return to the podium. She took second place in Madison after winning Event 5 and finishing top three in six other workouts. Horvath built up a lead of more than 100 points over the third-place contenders throughout the course of the weekend, before Annie Thorisdottir cut it to only 80 with an event win of her own.
