The competition wrapped up on Saturday with Bjorgvin Gudmundsson and former two-time CrossFit Games champion Annie Thorisdottir taking the titles. Gudmundsson was joined by Travis Mayer and Rasmus Anderson on the podium. Laura Horvath and Kara Webb rounded out the women’s podium.

The @dbxfitnesschamp in Dubai is one of my favorite competitions. I competed here last year, ended in seventh place and I´ve been looking forward to this one ever since. The city is awesome and the atmosphere here is amazing. I´m still wrapping my head around the fact that I earned a first place finish today but it sure feels good to know that all the effort I put in, every single day, amounts to something real💪 . Congrats to my great friend @anniethorisdottir on her victory. It was thoroughly deserved🏆 . Thanks to all of my fellow competitors and thanks to the DBX management and staff. Thanks to my sponsors and thanks to everyone else in my life. I´m a bit at a loss for words so I guess I´ll do another post once this has sunk in a bit 🙏🏻 . It is for sure that Iceland emerged victorious at this competition and I am very proud of that, I know Annie is too.
