After taking a year to compete on a team, Annie Thorisdottir is returning to the individual competition in 2023. In an interview with Talking Elite Fitness, the two-time CrossFit Games champion and youngest athlete to win the Games shared that the rumors were true…that she will compete as an individual this year.
But that is not the only news for Iceland Annie. She also extended her partnership with TYR Sport. Until now, Thorisdottir was wearing eyewear and swimsuits throughout 2022, but now Annie will also be wearing TYR shoes and apparel.
“I’m so excited to get to work alongside a company so invested in the sport that I love. Partnering with TYR excites me in so many ways, not only do I love the product but also the people behind it. The first generation of TYR Lifters and Trainers are so impressive that I can’t wait to see what the next iterations will bring,” said Thorisdottir.
TYR Sport has made its presence known in the CrossFit community over the past year, signing numerous Games athletes along the way. Annie is the latest to join the TYR brand.
“Annie is an integral part of the TYR Sport family. Her passion, determination and commitment to excellence make her an impactful member of the team. We can’t wait to see what she accomplishes next,” said Matt DiLorenzo, CEO of TYR Sport.
As for the Games season, Thorisdottir jumps back in during a year that will see the first new women’s champion in six years. Thorisdottir, now 33, will have to fend off younger athletes like Mal O’Brien (19), Laura Horvath (25) and Danielle Brandon (26) among others.
Thorisdottir finished 3rd in 2021 in the individual competition, but she approaches this year with the top spot at the top of her mind. “I fully believe that I stand a chance to win the CrossFit Games this year,” Thorisdottir told Talking Elite Fitness.
The 2023 CrossFit Open begins in just two days and now the women’s field just got even more interesting. Keep an eye out for Annie wearing TYR on the competition floor in Madison.
