4 – Camille Leblanc-Bazinet
Seven-year individual CrossFit Games veteran Camille Leblanc-Bazinet is one of CrossFit’s most enduring athletes. In 2014, she earned the title of Fittest Woman on Earth, and has finished in the top 10 in four out of her seven Games appearances, also winning five out of seven regional competitions. A former gymnast, Leblanc-Bazinet currently serves on the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar Staff. She also has a degree in chemical engineering
5 – Annie Thorisdottir
Annie Thorisdottir—or Iceland Annie, as she’s sometimes called—is a two-time CrossFit Games champion (2011-2012) and seven-time CrossFit Games veteran. Of those appearances, she’s stood on the podium four times—she took second in 2010 and 2014 in addition to her title-winning finishes—and with the exception of 2015, when she was forced to withdraw due to heat stroke, she’s never finished below the top 13.
First recognized at the 2009 CrossFit Games, when she famously performed her first muscle-up mid-competition, Thorisdottir often competes with a smile and has been celebrated throughout her career for her positive attitude, which permeated even her season on the sidelines, when a back injury in 2013 forced her to sit out.
A former gymnast, Thorisdottir owns CrossFit Reykjavik in Iceland.
6 – Brooke Wells
Two-time individual CrossFit Games athlete Brooke Wells made a name for herself at the 2015 Central Regional, which she won at 19 years old. It was her first individual regional appearance.
In 2014, she competed with team 540 Beefy of CrossFit 540 at the North Central Regional. She went on to take 16th in her debut Games appearance in 2015.
She proved herself again in 2016, taking third at the Central Regional but catapulting to sixth at the Games with six top-five finishes and one event win. Wells is a student at the University of Missouri and a trainer at CrossFit Fringe in Columbia.
7 – Rachel Garibay
Rachel Garibay is a three time CrossFit Regionals competitor that cannot wait to make her way back to the Regionals since 2016.
8 – Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir
In 2016, four-time CrossFit Games veteran Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir did what only two other athletes have done in the history of the CrossFit Games: win the CrossFit Games twice (Annie Thorisdottir won the Games in 2011 and 2012, and Rich Froning held the men’s title from 2011-2014).
A native of Reykjavik, Iceland, the former gymnast and track athlete took 30th in her first Games appearance in 2012 after less than a year of CrossFit, improving to 24th in 2013.
Famous for recouping her mental strength after a devastating event at the 2014 Europe Regional sidelined her from the Games that year, she returned in 2015 with an improved focus and took the title of Fittest Woman on Earth.
Now living in Natick, Massachusetts, she proved it was no fluke with a repeat victory in 2016.
9 – Jamie Greene
Former gymnast and rugby player Jamie Greene burst onto the CrossFit competition scene after winning the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games Open as a relative newcomer, taking three third-place finishes and never finishing outside the top 12. A CrossFit athlete since 2013 and coach at CrossFit Yas in Abu Dhabi, UAE, Greene helped team CrossFit Yas take third at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games.
10 – Alanna Fisk
Alanna Fisk has been doing CrossFit for almost 4 years, she was a competitive gymnast for 10 years before CrossFit, and was coached by a navy seal who trained to be prepared for the unknown.
