As a 17-year-old, Emma Lawson, now 18, burst onto the elite stage with an immediate impact, coming sixth at the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games. She followed that up by coming third at last year’s Rogue Invitational. On top of being the youngest competitor ever to compete at the CrossFit Games, she was also the youngest ever to wear the coveted white leaders jersey.

If this wasn’t enough, she already looks like she’s ready to build on last season as she sits seventh after 23.1 of the 2023 NOBULL CrossFit Games. Lawson, who just inked a deal with Pliability, an advanced mobility and recovery app, is also fast becoming a household name in the space and on a fast track to superstardom. 

But who is Emma behind the scenes, as a person, and outside of CrossFit? What makes her tick, well we’re glad you asked as she sat down with Morning Chalk Up for 23 questions so we can get some answers to the real burning questions.
