2010 CrossFit Games Finals

The Icelanders Acclimate

Annie and Sven train at CrossFit Ethos

In an effort to acclimate to the sun and heat of Southern California, Sveinbjörn Sveinbjörnsson and family have been in town for over a week, training and preparing at Jimi Letchford’s CrossFit Ethos. Coincidentally, two of Letchford’s clients are from Iceland and have struck a deal to house swap with Sven and family throughout the duration of the Games.

Annie Thorisdottir made the trek over early as well to get in some last-minute preparations. Sven and Annie got their first experience in a CrossFit group class just this past week, and Letchford came away impressed.

“They are both killing the met-con stuff. They are both amazing athletes.”

Annie is going to go very far - probably going to win the games!

It's obvious that they are doing something right in Iceland that America can learn from
