No More Excuses: Michaela North Crushed The CrossFit Games While Pregnant

Michaela North

A few weeks ago in Madison, Wisconsin, the Wasatch Brutes defeated two-time champions Mayhem CrossFit to secure the team title for the Games. It was a huge upset in an eventful weekend.

But the title may now be in question -- because it appears that the Brutes were using an extra competitor without the knowledge of anybody else:

But in all seriousness, how amazing is that? Michaela North was several weeks pregnant while competing at the highest level of CrossFit in Madison:

The North family is growing more and more, and the Brutes are probably thankful that this go-round didn't get started a little bit earlier. North was a crucial part of their success. She's consistently a top regional finisher, and obviously a total badass.
