“I believe it takes guts to set high goals and take the risks in an effort to reach them.”
- Elisabeth Akinwale
Is it odd that on some level I relate to Elisabeth? A CrossFitter, parent, and athlete that prefers the barbells? Yes, please. Though she admits disappointment in her finish, all I see is one helluva strong woman. The highlight for me was watching her clear the clean ladder. If she was not pleased with her performance this year, I cannot wait to see what happens at the 2013 Games when she is unleashed on the competition.
She offers some thoughts on her experience at the Games, that is well worth a read, here.
