Gillian Mounsey finished 3rd overall in the 2008 CrossFit Games. She had been training CrossFit specifically for only 12 weeks. But, as we find out in this profile from Again Faster, she has been training hard for about 16 years.
In this first of three parts, Gillian talks about her background, of fighting to do the boys’ workouts in junior high school, to beating the boys’ records in high school. She says that while there are physiological differences between males and females, one unnecessary difference is that females are not expected to perform like males, and for the most part, don’t train like males. If they did, would we see such disparity?
