Sam Briggs has accomplished a feat the majority of CrossFitters only dream of. In 2013, she stood on the Fittest On Earth's podium, having successfully won the title at the CrossFit Games. Her strength, agility, and speed propelled her above the field of competition, which is why her failure to qualify to the Games the next year left the world speechless. A week before clenching a silver medal & securing a trip to Carson at the 2015 Atlantic Regional, Sam Briggs suffered an avulsion fracture in her foot, news that would leave any athlete questioning whether their athletic season was over. Should she compete...? Or throw in the towel...? There's much more to Sam that meets the eye, and the adversity this athlete has overcome is seemingly more than any other high-level CrossFitter. In this series, we'll give you an in-depth look at the life of Sam Briggs, her 10-year experience as a firefighter, and the unsurpassable passion and dedication she has for this sport.
