Annie's Favorite Gear
After making her competitive CrossFit debut as a 20 year-old in 2010, Rogue athlete Annie Thorisdottir quickly earned the nickname “Thor’s Daughter”—not just as a play on her last name, but as a description of her otherworldly athleticism. In the years that followed, she earned a new title, “Fittest Woman on Earth,” as her first place finishes at the 2011 and 2012 CrossFit Games made her the event’s first two-time Women’s Champion.
Thorisdottir was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, where she trained in gymnastics for nearly a decade and developed added skills in ballet dancing and pole vaulting. Since taking up CrossFit, she routinely dominated the women’s European Regionals and reached the podium at the Games in each of her first four appearances. After a major injury forced her out of competition in 2013, she still bounced back to take 2nd Place at the Games the following summer.
Annie co-owns her own Affiliate in Reykjavik and coaches other athletes in her spare time. Her own line of products in the Rogue Signature Series includes the popular Rogue Annie T-Shirt with the “Thor’s Daughter” design.
