Athlete Feature: Ruth Anderson Horrell

Sheep farmer Ruth Anderson Horrell was the only woman representing the island nation of New Zealand at the CrossFit Games in 2012. 

"The CrossFit community in New Zealand is really still starting out," she says. "It's probably only taken off over the last two years."

After finishing second at the 2012 Australia Regional, her countrymen performed the traditional Maori "Haka." The Kiwi is no doubt hoping to see the native New Zealand war dance on the floor in 2013.

The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games will re-air on ESPN2 starting Dec. 16.
