Lindsey Smith is one of an elite group of ladies (think Kepler, Cardella, Sharratt) training out of CrossFit Central in Austin, Texas. In her former athletic life, Smith was a scholarship soccer player for DePaul University, and her focus on athletics at a younger age laid the groundwork for her success in the CrossFit Games.
Since finishing fifth in the 2009 Games, Smith has continued to improve her fitness, and heading into the 2010 Games against a very stacked deck of competitors, she was confident and composed.
We happened to catch up with Smith on Saturday of Games weekend for this interview.
