Throughout the Open, Sigmundsdottir's scores were included in the Southern California region where she placed first overall and won the Worldwide Open as well. If you paid attention to her scores though, you'd notice that every one of her Open workouts were done at CrossFit Mayhem, home of Rich Froning in Cookeville, TN.
It turns out Sara made it to the States but moved to Tennessee just before the Open started and has been training and living there through the Open. CrossFit HQ took notice and has moved her scores from Southern California to Central East and she will now compete out of the Central region instead of California.
This makes the Central region much more competitive. Already home to Brooke Wells, Kristi Eramo, Stacie Tovar, and Jennifer Smith, Sara Sigmundsdottir adds a curve ball for any of the athletes on the bubble of qualifying for the Games. On the flip side, this opens up another spot for the women in California.
After finishing in third at the CrossFit Games twice in a row, Sigmundsdottir has got her eyes on dethroning her countrywoman Katrin Davidsdottir and take the title of Fittest On Earth.
