After withdrawing from the 2012 season, Samantha Briggs is returning to competition.
In early 2012, Sam Briggs was mentally prepared for the CrossFit Games season. This experienced athlete, a full-time firefighter from Manchester, England, had jumped from 19th place in the 2010 Reebok CrossFit Games to fourth place in the 2011 Games. She placed third worldwide in the 2011 Open. Expectations were high for 2012.
