Fifth time on the podium for Annie Mist

Annie Mist Þórisdóttir placed third at the CrossFit Games in Madison Wisconsin this weekend in the fight for the title Fittest Woman on Earth. Three Icelandic competitors were in the top five, drawing much deserved attention for their accomplishments.

Annie placed second in the last competition, securing third place with 964 points in all. The feat marks the fifth-time Annie steps onto the CrossFit Games podium, a record in the women’s category. She has won the title twice.

Ragnheiður Sara Sigmundsdóttir and last year’s winner, Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir, placed fourth and fifth respectively.

By the final competition, Australians Tia-Clair Toomey and Kara Webb were locked in a tight race for the title with Toomey beating Webb by only two points, 994 to 992.
