Complete and Utter CrossFitter: Amanda Allen

Winner of the 2013 Open in Australia, Amanda Allen talks about trading her Olympic aspirations for CrossFit.

A natural athlete, 42-year-old Allen flourished from the start and feels she's at a great place in the sport today.

"I think I've got a platform now where I can begin to build," Allen says. "It's taken two years to get the foundation and the incredible platform, so I can't wait to see what happens in the third year ... What happens at next year's Regionals? Because it's not about my age. If you told me I was 22, I'd believe you, that's how I feel."
