Kari Pearce Announces Her Retirement

October 22, 2021

Kari Pearce announced on Instagram today that she will be retiring after the Rogue Invitational. 

After 7 years in the sport, she has decided to change her focus to her business — PowerAbs. Pearce has qualified for every CrossFit Games since 2015, with her best finish at the 2020 CrossFit Games when she came in third. That was the first year an American woman stood on the podium since Julie Foucher in 2014. 

“The last 7 years have been nothing short of amazing … . I have met so many incredible people and have grown so much as an athlete but even more importantly, as a person,” Pearce said in her post.
