Muscle-ups knocked Annie Mist Thorisdottir out of the 2009 CrossFit Games. Mike Warkentin reports that Thorisdottir is confident the movement won’t be a problem again.
Moments earlier, the 19-year-old from Iceland had failed to finish the gruelling chipper but had managed to inspire the entire crowd by getting her very first muscle-up in one of the Games’ most memorable moments.
After the Games, Thorisdottir vowed she would learn the muscle-up, and when she appeared unannounced at a Level 1 Cert in San Diego, Calif., on Oct. 24, the CrossFit Journal asked her about her blossoming skills. Speaking via a video link-up from the sunny SoCal city, Thorisdottir explained that it took some time to get better at the gymnastics movement.
