Why Annie Thorisdottir’s Career is (Almost) as Impressive as Tia-Clair Toomey’s

If anyone was still questioning whether, even after 13 years in the sport, that 32 year-old, six-time CrossFit Games podium finisher Annie Thorisdottir, is really fitter than she has ever been, last month’s Rogue Invitational in Austin, TX single-handedly crushed the doubters. 

After giving birth to her baby girl Freyja in the summer of 2020, Thorisdottir wasn’t quite sure whether or not she’d even compete in 2021. Considering her difficult birth and serious case of pregnancy-induced diastasis recti that weakened her core considerably for months, even qualifying to the CrossFit Games last season seemed like a tall task. But not only did Thorisdottir qualify for the Games, she finished on the podium in third place.

Three months later at the recent Rogue Invitational, Thorisdottir was hands down more impressive than she was in Madison, WI last summer, where she finished 336 points behind five-time Games champion Tia-Clair Toomey.
