This year, she’s taking on a different challenge: MacKenzie Voboril is six months pregnant, and the fourth-grade teacher is CrossFitting through her pregnancy. She’s still lifting heavy, though she’s confining herself to sub-maximal weights. Even with her pregnancy, MacKenzie Voboril beats some of the other athletes at Dogtown CrossFit, the Culver City, Calif., gym where she trains.
The baby’s due this summer, so Val won’t be competing in the 2011 CrossFit Games finals. The 2012 Games may be a different story, though.
