After a four-year hiatus from individual CrossFit Games competition, 29-year-old Lauren Fisher says she’s more fit than ever and has her sights set on, not just returning to, but being a force at the CrossFit Games this summer.

Remind me: Fisher burst onto the scene as an individual in 2014, when at the age of 20, the then CrossFit Invictus athlete placed an impressive ninth in the world as a Games rookie.

After that, Fisher’s life became a whirlwind of traveling, photoshoots, and sponsorship deals—including signing with Nike and getting her own shoe—as she was touted as the next big thing in CrossFit.

But things didn’t go as planned for Fisher in the upcoming years. Plagued by injury after injury, Fisher did return to the Games three times as an individual—in 2016, 2017 and 2018—but never managed to repeat the top 10 performance from her rookie season. In fact, each year she competed as an individual, she fell further down the leaderboard.
