Two-time third-fittest woman on earth Sara Sigmundsdottir announced today that she is moving from her native Iceland to the United States in time to compete at the 2017 Southern California CrossFit Regional from May 26-28. 



In a Skype interview, Sigmundsdottir told Sean Woodman of The CrossFit Games Update Show that she made the decision in December to leave her coaches and move to California.

... [when it comes to] where I can get really good training in and can get 100 percent focus for the Games… California was the first thing that came to mind.
Sigmundsdottir will train out of Oceanside, California. She has not yet decided on her new coaching staff, but said she's currently talking with several coaches to see who might be the best to help her with the mental side of the sport.

Her addition to the crowded Southern California Regional will add another A-list name to an already star-studded cast. Last year, Lauren Fisher, Chyna Cho, Becca Voigt, Alessandra Pichelli and Jamie Hagiya qualified for the Games to the dismay of perennial powerhouses Brooke Ence and Colleen Fotsch.

Sigmundsdottir is riding considerable momentum heading into the 2017 CrossFit Open. Last week, she competed at the 2017 WOW Reykjavik Games Olympic Weight Lifting Championships and broke several national records en route to winning the -69kg category. At the end of 2016, she also won the CrossFit Invitational as part of Team Europe as well as the Dubai Fitness Championships

In just two weeks, Sigmundsdottir will travel to Cookeville, Tennessee, for the CrossFit Open to complete 17.1 with Rich Froning and CrossFit Mayhem Freedom. If her recent feats of strength and fitness are any indication, Sigmundsdottir is poised for an impressive 2017 season.

​Watch Sara Sigmundsdottir crush an insane, high-intensity clean-and-jerk workout:
