Last names ending in Dottir have become quite well known over the past 10 years within the international CrossFit community as Icelandic women have been taking the podium at the International CrossFit games and other CrossFit competitions time and again. It started with Annie Mist Thorisdottir, then came Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir and Ragnheidur Sara Sigmundsottir. Those are by no means the only elite CrossFit women of Iceland and no doubt we have some rising stars in the sport.
Annie Mist Thorisdottir
The formidable Annie Mist Thorisdottir is the first woman to win the CrossFit Games twice (2011 and 2012). She has also had two second place finishes. Annie Mist is a professional CrossFit athlete and the co-owner of CrossFit Reykjavik where she coaches and trains.
Ragnheiður Sara Sigmundsdottir
Before taking part in her first CrossFit games in 2015, Ragnheidur Sara Sigmundsdottir was winning every event she attended, such as the East Coast Championship and the Meridian CrossFit Regionals in Denmark. She finished third in the CrossFit Games in 2015 and 2016 and fourth in 2017.
Katrín Tanja Davidsdottir
Katrín Tanja Davidsdottir competed at the CrossFit Games for the first time in 2012 when she was only 19 years old. In 2016 she won the CrossFit Games for the second consecutive time making her the second woman in history to win the competition twice.
