Still waiting for the Gillian Mounsey action figure... anyone working on that?

And I really enjoyed the recent interview series, too, that was in the Journal. Great to hear her story and perspectives first-hand.

In addition to being a kick ass athlete and a brilliant coach, Gillian is one of the most giving people I know - those of you who've had the good fortune to meet and train with her know what I'm talking about.

Wishing Gillian all the best in this year's Games!

About that action figure - I'd like to order a whole case. Gillian is a true role model. She sets a prime example. Her spirit, determination and mental fortitude are unmatched. She is also quite possibly the finest, most well rounded athlete that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The strength that she displays, combined with grace and precision are exquisite to watch - truly art in motion.

Gillian - good luck at the games this year. Show them how it's done. You are an inspiration to us all.

Great numbers, and they are only getting better! Your focus and determination are unparalleled. Those of us that know you as a person know that your stats are only a small part of the real person.

You make the Crossfit community a better place.
