The Iceland Angel
Annie gives a recap of event 5
Crowd favorite, "Iceland" Annie Thorrisdottir, went head to head with Kristan Clever for the entire weekend of Games competition. In the Pyramid Double Helen event they performed their swings face to face and finished minutes apart. This trend continued all the way through the final event with both women trading the lead in all 3 parts.
Event 3 tasked the athletes with heavy deadlifts, pistols and double unders. Clever and Annie put on a clinic for the other competitors. In keeping with the trend of the weekend, they gave the crowd what they came for - a battle that went to the buzzer. Annie came out on top with the best score overall for the event.
Sevan Matossian interviewed Annie briefly about the event and how her view of the competition has changed in the past year.
