Annie Thorisdottir was the picture of determination as she joined her countryman, Sveinbjorn Sveinbjornsson in clinching the number one spot in the sandbag sprint event with a time of 1:07.4. The performance was enough to jump Annie's overall standings from fifth to first, edging out Tanya Wagner as they entered the row/sledge WOD. She maintained the top spot until Wagner reclaimed it in the couplet.
Annie chased Wagner from the second position until a lack of muscle-ups cost her a place on the podium. Such astounding performances in the absence of technical programming (neither Annie or Sven had ever completed one rep of either the snatch, GHD sit up or muscle-up before the Games) makes it likely that Iceland will be a force at next years Games.
