WOW Stronger Day 2 Recap

We told you that the WOW Stronger competition wouldn't disappoint! Sunday's action saw six Super Teams take the floor to compete for the title of 2018 WOW Stronger Champions in Reykjavik, Iceland. Five teams made up of invited CrossFit stars from all over and one team from Saturday that earned the right to compete against the Super Teams.

After four exciting events combining elements of traditional CrossFit and Strongman, the field was narrowed to just the top two teams on the leaderboard. 

In first was Team Annie, consisting of Annie Thorisdottir, Frederik Aegidius, and Nick Bloch. In second was Team Third Wheel, consisting of Blaine McConnell, Bjork Odinsdottir, and Thruster Ólason. Sitting in third, just on the outside of making the finals, was Team BK, featuring Björgvin K. Guðmundsson, Elizabeth Adams, and Nick Urankar.

Team Annie edged out Team Third Wheel in the final event to claim the title. This is the second year in a row that Annie Thorisdottir and Frederik Aegidius have won WOW Stronger.
