Katrin Davidsdottir is the consecutive two-time champion of CrossFit's The Fittest Woman on Earth competition. A former gymnast from Reykjavik, Iceland, she is only the third person to ever win the games twice, and only the second woman to do so. She is currently training for next year's games in Natick, Massachusetts.
"I met Katrin during her first week of attending CrossFit classes, shortly after my first CrossFit Games championship...Her story is a reminder to fans and aspiring athletes that anyone can achieve greatness if they are willing to work hard enough. It's also a testament to the power of Iceland's Dottirs that makes my heart swell with pride." --Annie Thorisdottir, Two-Time CrossFit Games Champion "Katrin Davidsdottir is a fierce competitor with a great story. In the season leading up to my first CrossFit Games championship she was my primary training partner, and she pushed me to new levels of performance. That year I trained by myself mostly, but I would picture her there next to me and think, she wouldn't be putting the bar down... she would be taking shorter breaks. But Kat wasn't always fierce. She was forced to overcome huge setbacks. Instead of running from failure or accepting mediocrity, Katrin learned from her mistakes and worked even harder, both inside the gym on her fitness and outside of the gym on her mindset. Katrin became a champion by choice, and her story highlights what I believe above all things. That there is no magic pill. There are no superior genetics. There are no shortcuts. There is only hard work. And hard work pays off." --Mat Fraser, three time defending Fittest Man on Earth"Hundreds of books claim to possess the secret ingredients of becoming a champion.
