CrossFit: The world’s most diverse workout meets all-round performance
Sara Sigmundsdottir is one of the world’s most successful female CrossFit athletes. She won the CrossFit Open, the second most important competition in this sport, in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020. She has also won prestigious regional competitions in Europe and Dubai. She won bronze medals in 2015 and 2016 at the CrossFit Games, the sport’s world championship competition. CrossFit is a competition that incorporates a range of exercises from various disciplines. These disciplines include gymnastics, powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, endurance and rowing.
“As an athlete who challenges herself in a range of disciplines and strives for perfection, Sara Sigmundsdottir is an ideal brand ambassador,” Jost Capito, Managing Director of Volkswagen R, said in welcoming the Icelandic competitor to the Volkswagen R team.
The passion however, was something that began to develop earlier during her intensive power and athletic training. Her academic work is not only helping her lay the foundation for her post-athletic life, but also counterbalances the demands that training and competition place on her.
“I am beyond proud to be working with Volkswagen R, a brand that embodies so much of what I believe and stand for” Sigmundsdottir said.
