Sara Sigmundsdottir Battling Illness Days Before CrossFit Invitational

In a CrossFit Games Update Show, Sean Woodland reported that Sara Sigmundsdottir has not been practicing with Team Europe as she has been sick ever since arriving in Australia. Sigmundsdottir has been dealing with a stomach bug and a fever.

Following this report, however, it appears that Sigmundsdottir is back with her team today. Sigmundsdottir was in several photos posted by teammates on Instagram over the past several hours as well as she was on CrossFit Game’s Instagram story appearing to be warming up.

Only time will tell if Sigmundsdottir can recover enough to compete at full strength on Sunday. If Sigmundsdottir is unable to compete, Sam Briggs, Europe Team’s coach, will step in and replace the 4th place CrossFit Games finisher.
