Blaine McConnell and Bjork Odinsdottir competed together on CrossFit Nordic at the 2016 CrossFit Games and are teammates on the NPGL’s Phoenix Rise. McConnell and Odinsdottir have been dating for a while and as of yesterday, they are now engaged.
During a team hike with their Phoenix Rise teammates, Odinsdottir proposed to McConnell. Yes, she was the one that proposed! McConnell obviously said ‘yes’.
The proposal was captured and shared by many of their teammates on Instagram.
