Icelandic two-time CrossFit World Champion Annie Mist Þórisdóttir is featured in the April issue of US Vogue. In an interview with Adam Green she discusses the highs and lows of being an athlete in such a challenging sport.
Annie Mist confesses how she first thought the magazine wanted to feature her in their sports edition: “I Googled to see if there was a sports edition of the magazine. I was so excited when I realized no, it was the Vogue."
In the article, Annie Mist also expresses her wish to inspire women, especially young girls, to focus more on what their bodies can do than on how they look. “I’m not preaching that everyone should try to become a CrossFit champion,” she told the magazine. “But I want to show them that training can give them more confidence—and that being strong is beautiful.”
