Sara's Favorite Gear
Iceland has produced more than its fair share of world class CrossFit competitors, but even among these ranks, Rogue athlete Ragnheiður Sara Sigmundsdottir has made a unique and memorable impact.
At just 26 years of age, this 2017 Worldwide Open winner has already managed a pair of Meridian Regional titles, a victory in her debut at the U.S. Central Regional, and three Top 5 finishes at the Games (3rd in 2015 and 2016, 4th in 2017). She was favored by many to return to the podium in 2018 until a rib injury forced her to withdraw halfway through Saturday’s action. “Sometimes things are unfair and don’t go as planned,” she posted to social media afterward. “One thing is for sure, I’ll be back!”
Considering how many fans were chanting her name in Madison, it’s safe to say Sigmundsdottir we be welcomed back enthusiastically in 2019— ready to make another run at becoming the Fittest Woman on Earth.
